Personal profile


Dr Triantafyllos Kanakis holds a BEng (Hons) in Communication Systems Engineering from the University of Portsmouth, an MSc in Mobile and Personal Communications from King’s College London and a PhD in Wireless and Mobile Communications from the University of Greenwich.

He worked as a senior lecturer in Mobile and Wireless Communications at the University of Greenwich before joining the Hellenic Navy to fulfil his mandatory military service where he served with the rank of corporal. He then moved to Czech Republic where he worked as a network engineer for AT&T, the world’s largest network provider, before returning back to the UK where he worked as a Technical Trainer in eXplanoTech. He has been the main editor of the technology columns of and the Athens Views newspaper.

Dr Kanakis has participated in major international scientific and technical conferences and forums as a presenter, while he has tens of scientific and technical publications in international journals and conferences.

He joined the University of Northampton, Department of Computing, in 2014 as a Lecturer in Computer Networks later promoted to Senior Lecturer and Computer Networks Engineering pathway leader.
