Stelios Timotheou is an Associate Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering and a faculty member at the KIOS Research and Innovation Center of Excellence, of the University of Cyprus. In previous appointments, he was a Research Associate at KIOS, a Visiting Lecturer at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the University of Cyprus, and a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Computer Science and Technology of the University of Cambridge.

He holds a Dipl-Ing in Electrical and Computer Engineering (Summa Cum Laude, 2005) from the National Technical University of Athens, an MSc in Communications and Signal Processing (Distinction, 2006) and a PhD in Intelligent Systems and Networks (2010), from the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Imperial College London.

His research focuses on analyzing data and making informed decisions in challenging environments, with the purpose of enhancing efficiency and delivering new capabilities in situational awareness and decision making. Towards this direction, he develops customised, real-time, distributed and cooperative methodologies and algorithms, drawing on theory from mathematical optimization, machine learning, statistical data processing and computational intelligence. His research is applied in monitoring and control of Critical Infrastructure Systems that are essential for the functioning of national societies and economies such as Intelligent Transportation Systems, Future Power Systems, Wireless Communications, Smart Water Networks, and Emergency Response.

His work has been funded by several research grants, including a prestigious European Research Council (ERC) Consolidator Grant (ERC-2022-COG) / PE7 (Systems and Communications Engineering), for his project "Real-Time Urban Mobility Management via Intelligent UAV-based Sensing" (URANUS).
