Christos Antonopoulos was born in Alexandroupolis, Greece on July 20, 1958. He received the Diploma and the Doctorate Degree in Electrical Engineering from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1981 and in 1990 respectively.

His doctoral thesis deals with electromagnetic field calculations in stratified media using the T-Ω method and a boundary element technique. Now, his scientific interests include problems dealing with Electromagnetic field theory, analytical and numerical methods in electromagnetism, EMC, Antenna design, Acoustic propagation, Bioengineering, Metamaterials and their application to PCB isolation, filtering and absorption. He is currently a professor with the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Faculty of Technology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. His duties include teaching undergraduate courses on Electromagnetic Field Theory, Wave Propagation, Geo-Electromagnetism, and Acoustics. A graduate course in Electromagnetic Field Theory and Electromagnetic Compatibility is included at his teaching duties. 

He serves as a reviewer for various journals and conferences such as: IEEE Trans. on Magnetics, IEEE Trans. on Electromagnetic Compatibility, IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing, IEEE Trans. on Microwave Theory and Techniques, IET Microwaves, Antennas & Propagation, IEE special proceedings on Computational Electromagnetics, COMPEL, IEEE Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computation (CEFC), IEEE International Conference on Computational of the Electromagnetic Fields (COMPUMAG), European Conference on Antennas and Propagation (EuCAP),  U.R.S.I. and IEE Conference on Computation Electromagnetics (CEM). He participated and continues to work in many research projects.  Among others he had the University’s scientific responsibility (administration also) of a project co-financed by the European Union (European Social Fund – ESF) and Greek national funds through the Operational Program “Education and Lifelong Learning” of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) – Research Funding Program: Heracleitus II. Investing in knowledge society through the European Social Fund. (Budget about 5 million Euros). The project financed 113 graduate students towards a doctor thesis degree covering a wide spectrum of scientific areas. Prof. Antonopoulos was a member of URSI, Technical Chamber of Greece and Hellenic Institute of Acoustics. At the present he is a member of IEEΕ

Prof. Antonopoulos served the Aristotle University from various positions. He was member of the Senate (the main executive board) of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in different periods, for about 4 years, Head of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering for 1 Year (2010-2011), Vice Head of the same department (2009-2010, 2010-2011 as head of department also),Director of Telecommunications Division for 3 years (2005-2008) ,Director of the Telecommunications Laboratory for about 8 years (2011-2018), Member of the Advisory board of the Hellenic Institute of Acoustics (2010-2012).  He has been and is a member of various committees in the University such as member of student advisors board, President of the program committee, President of University volunteers committee, large instruments purchasing committee and others. He served and is a member of the organising committee of various conferences. At present he is a member of the international steering committee of the Conference on Electromagnetic Field Computation (CEFC) until 2023, and general chairman of a future conference ISEM 2021 (International Symposium on Applied Electromagnetics and Mechanics), which is going to take place at Thessaloniki Greece at 2022. Besides he is the chair of IEEE Greece, Electron devices – Microwave Theory and Technique – Antennas and Propagation joined chapter. Among other activities he is in the advisory board of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Aristotle University. He received the following awards. Most Outstanding Paper – Award of Excellence, published for year 2002 in COMPEL – The International Journal for Computation and Mathematics in Electrical and Electronic Engineering., 2002., Emerald-COMPEL Best Paper Award, 9th International Symposium on Electromagnetic Fields in Electrical Engineering (ISEF 2001), Cracow, Poland, 2001., IEEE CEFC 2000, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A., June 4-7, Best presented poster paper award.
