Dr. Christos Bouganis


I am a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering at Imperial College London, and the MSc Director of Analogue and Digital Integrated Circuit Design. My main research interests include the theory and practice of reconfigurable computing and design automation, mainly targeting digital signal processing algorithms. Particularly, I am interested in the design of high-performance systems based on reconfigurable computing spanning the areas of Computer Vision, Machine Learning, and Bayesian Inference.

Invited talk in “Workshop on Unconventional Computing for Bayesian Inference” in iROS 2015. My talk was focused on how reconfigurable computing can change the landscape of computational Bayesian inference.

Research activities

Please find details on my current research in the relevant pages. I am always looking for motivated, strong academically, students that want to do a PhD in one of the research areas of my interest. Regarding summer internships, I only accept students from Imperial College.

Teaching related activities

I am the Director for the MSc in Analogue and Digital Integrated System Design. I am also teaching Advanced Digital System Design (MSc course), Digital System Design (3rd Year course), Software Engineering and Algorithms (2nd Year course), and I am responsible for the First Year Project for the EIE stream. All the relevant information about these modules can be found in BlackBoard (internal tool).

(a not so) Short Bio

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of Imperial College London. I have obtained an M.Eng. degree in Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece, in 1998, an M.Sc. degree in Communications and Signal Processing from Imperial College London in 1999, and a Ph.D. degree from Imperial College London in 2004. After my PhD, I worked as a Research Associate in the Circuits and Systems research group of the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department of Imperial College. In April 2007, I was appointed as a lecturer in the same department, and soon after to Senior Lecturer. I am currently serving on the programme committees of many international conferences, including FCCM, FPL, FPT, DATE, SPPRA, and ARC. In October of 2007, I served as the Program Chair of the

IET FPGA designers' forum, and in March 2008 I was the General Chair of the Fourth International Workshop on Applied Reconfigurable Computing. In March 2016 I am serving as the Program Chair of the International Workshop on Applied Reconfigurable Computing. I have published over 60 research papers in peer-referred

journals and international conferences and he has contributed three book chapters. Currently, I serve on the editorial boards of IET Computers & Digital Techniques, Journal of Systems Architecture, and IEEE Transactions on Image Processing. I am a member of the IEEE and the ACM.
