Leontios J. Hadjileontiadis

Rreceived the Diploma degree in Electrical Engineering in 1989 and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering in 1997, both from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Thessaloniki, Greece. Prof. Hadjileontiadis also holds a Diploma in Musicology (AUTH, Thessaloniki, 2011) and a Ph.D. degree in music composition (University of York, UK, 2004). Since December 1999 he joined the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, AUTH, Greece, as a faculty member, where he is a Professor, working on signal processing in the fields of biomedical engineering (bioacoustics, ECG data compression, high density EEG-based 3D vector field tomography) affective computing (EEG-based emotion recognition), educational data analytics (blended-, affective-, collaborative-learning modeling), non-destructive testing data analysis (crack detection in beams and plates), behavioral modeling (swarm-based decomposition/transform) at the Signal Processing and Biomedical Technology Unit of the Telecommunications Laboratory, serving also as its Director. He is also a Professor in composition at the State Conservatory of Thessaloniki, Greece and has written 90 music composition and awarded 12 times. His research interests are in higher-order statistics, alpha-stable distributions, higher-order zero crossings, wavelets, higher-order statistics/spectra, wavelet polyspectra, lower-order statistics, fractals, swarm analysis, neuro-fuzzy modeling for medical, mobile and digital signal processing applications. So far, he has supervised six PhD Students and three Postdoc researchers, while his publication record includes >100 papers in peer reviewed international journals, >145 papers in peer reviewed international conference proceedings, 6 books, 2 book edited, 23 book chapters and 2 patents (h factor 34, >3850 citations). Prof. Hadjileontiadis is a Senior Member of the IEEE.
