Paschalis Tsiaflakis is a researcher at Bell Labs Alcatel-Lucent (Antwerp, Belgium), where his research activities are centered around next generation ultra-broadband access. He received the M.Eng. degree (summa cum laude) in information and communication technology from the KHLim, Belgium, in 2001, and the M.Sc. degree (magna cum laude) in electrical engineering (option multimedia & signal processing) from the KU Leuven, Belgium, in 2004. He obtained a Ph.D. degree in electrical engineering from the KU Leuven in 2009, after which he hold a postdoc position from 2010 until 2013. He was a visiting researcher at Princeton University in 2007, a visiting postdoc at the University of California Los Angeles in 2010, a postdoctoral research associate at the Center for Operations Research and Econometrics of UCLouvain in 2011, and a visiting postdoc at Tsinghua University in 2013. His research expertise is centered around signal processing, resource management and optimization for wireline and wireless communication systems. He received the "Belgian Young ICT Personality" award sponsored by FITCE in 2010, two IEEE ICC best paper awards in 2013, the "Best Multimedia Master Thesis" prize award sponsored by PIMC in 2001, and was a top-12 finalist for the European ERCIM Cor Baayen Award 2010. He also received a FWO Aspirant Grant in 2004, a PDMK postdoc grant in 2009, a Francqui Intercommunity Postdoc Grant in 2010, a FWO postdoc grant 2011, and a FNRS postdoc grant in 2011.
