Dr. Stavros G. Stavrinides is a Physicist with an M.Sc. in Electronics and a Ph.D. in Chaotic Electronics, all awarded by the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in Thessaloniki, Greece. He currently serves as a Professor at the Physics Department of the International Hellenic University (IHU), in Kavala, Greece. For more than 12 years, he taught, as an Adjunct Lecturer, numerous courses in academia, relevant to circuit theory and electronics, time-series forecasting, and data security. From 2012 to 2013 he was with the ECE Department, University of Cyprus, as a Visiting Assistant Professor. He has authored or co-authored more than 90 journal and conference papers.

His research interests include, non-exhaustively:

  • Design of analog and mixed-signal electronic circuits;
  • Chaotic electronics and their applications, including chaotic synchronization (with emphasis on secure data transmission and cryptography);
  • Nonlinear dynamics of electronic devices;
  • Memristors and memristive circuits;
  • Hardware-based security with emphasis on the Internet of Things and edge computing applications,
  • Circuits and systems based on Stochastic Logic (Stochastic Computing)
  • Education and Econophysics.

Moreover, he has also participated, as a researcher or coordinator, in several nationally and internationally (EU, NATO) funded projects, while he served as the STSM Committee Chair in the COST-IC1401 action on memristors. Dr. Stavrinides has been a member of numerous Conference Committees (Program/Organizing/Scientific), while he chaired the 4th International Interdisciplinary Symposium on Chaos and Complex Systems (CCS2019). He has been a reviewer in more than 80 prestigious scientific journals and conferences, as well as research projects, edited two books and guest-edited six journal special issues. Finally, he is an IEEE Senior Member and a member of the Chua Memristor Center.
