Mathaios Panteli holds an Assistant Professor position within the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Cyprus, since January 2021. Prior to joining UCY, he was a Lecturer at the Power and Energy Division of The University of Manchester, serving as the Deputy Lead of the Sustainable Energy Systems research cluster. His academic qualifications include an M.Eng. degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2009, and a Ph.D. degree in Electrical Power Engineering from The University of Manchester, U.K., in 2013. Through his academic career, Mathaios has successfully developed a multi-million research portfolio, attracting funding from research councils, industry, and European Commission. He has published over 60 research articles in high-impact peer-reviewed journals and conference proceedings, and he delivered several invited presentations in panel sessions of international conferences, industrial and policymaking organizations. Mathaios has collaborated with and consulted EU and international organizations, including ENTSO-E, The World Bank, and International Institute for Environment and Development. Mathaios is an IEEE Senior Member, an IET Chartered Engineer (CEng), the co-chair of the CIGRE WG C4.47 “Power System Resilience”, an invited member of multiple IEEE and CIGRE working groups, and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK).
