Dr Konstantinos Dimopoulos is a senior lecturer in the Department of Computer Science in the International Faculty of the University of Sheffield. He is the coordinator of the UG projects and the pricipal research ethics administrator of the Department. He is teaching six UG and two PG units and has designed over seven new teaching modules at the college. He has participated to two EU projects. In the past he has worked as a research assistant at the University of Reading where he was also a part time lecturer. He has worked with the application of Neural Networks as nonlinear identifiers for the purpose of control and linearisation of nonlinear systems. He has also worked with the investigation of nonlinear control strategies and their application on robotic manipulators. He is currently working on mobile robots, algorithms of networked systems, simulated life and neural networks.
