Since April 2022, he is a full professor in the department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Technical University of Crete, in the field of Modeling and Optimization of Computer Networks.
His research interests include communications and computer networks, stochastic modeling and queueing systems, continuous, discrete, and distributed optimization methods, social networking, recommendation algorithms, and artificial intelligence and machine learning with application to networking problems. He has published more than 150 research articles in international scientific journals and proceedings of international conferences in the above areas, works that have received more than 12000 citations. He is the recipient of the best paper award at the IEEE SECON 2008, IEEE WoWMoM 2012 conferences, as well as the best paper award runner-up for at the ACM Mobihoc 2011, IEEE WoWMoM 2015, IEEE WoWMoM 2021 conferences. In 2019 he was recognized as one of the most influential Greek researchers worldwide under the age of 45, and more recently as being in the top 2% οφ researchers worldwide.
Thrasyvoulos Spyropoulos has also been a technical program committee (TPC) member of the most important conferences in the field of Computer Networks, such as IEEE INFOCOM, ACM Sigmetrics, ACM Mobihoc, as well as associate editor in the leading journal in the field, ACM / IEEE Transactions on Networking (2017-2022). He has participated in the organization of various conferences and workshops in the field, such as IEEE NetSciCom, ACM Chants, ACM Sigmetrics, and others.
