Kriezis_ManolisEmmanouil Kriezis was born in Thessaloniki in 1968. He received his diploma in Electrical Engineering and his Doctorate degree from the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in 1991 and 1996, respectively. His doctoral thesis focused on the development of full vector beam propagation methods for light wave propagation in integrated optical devices. In 1998 he joined the University of Oxford, Department of Engineering Science, initially as an EPSRC post-doctoral researcher. In 2000 he moved into a grant directly funded by the Hewlett Packard Laboratories at Bristol. In 2001 he was awarded the prestigious Royal Society University Research Fellowship to study light propagation in complex anisotropic media.

Since May 2014 he has been Professor in Optical & Microwave Communications at the Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He is teaching the undergraduate courses Optical Communications (8th semester), Microwaves (9th semester) and Photonics Technology (9th semester), together with a postgraduate course on advanced photonics. His research interests include nanophotonics with emphasis on plasmonics, integrated photonic devices on silicon, nonlinear phenomena, optical micro-structured fibers, advanced computational techniques for the analysis and design of photonic devices and circuits, liquid crystal photonics and diffractive optical elements.
He is an IEEE Senior Member and also a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece.
