VICE PRESIDENT BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING
Panos Kosmas co-founded MediWise in 2011, with the aim to develop new commercial applications of radio waves in medical sensing and imaging. He is currently a Reader at the Faculty of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, King’s College London, United Kingdom. He has also held research positions at the Center for Subsurface Sensing and Imaging Systems, Boston, USA, the University of Loughborough, UK, and the Computational Electromagnetics Group, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA. Panos joins MTI with 20 years of experience in the use of EM waves for medical applications, specialising in numerical simulations, antenna design, and the development of algorithms which can translate data from sensors and devices to meaningful diagnostic information. He is currently principal investigator and project manager in research projects of total value over £7M, which are funded by Innovate UK, European Union’s H2020 Programme, and UK’s Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). Panos received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 1999, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from Northeastern University, Boston, MA, USA in 2002 and 2005, respectively. His academic expertise extends to microwave engineering, signal processing and physics-based detection methods, and inverse problems theory and techniques. He has contributed two book chapters and over 90 journal and conference publications, and he has organised and delivered various short courses, special sessions, and workshops in these areas.
