Dr Christos Kloukinas is a Senior Lecturer (equivalent to an Associate Professor in the USA) at the Department of Computer Science and has been member of the Software Engineering research group (SE@City), one of the department's groups working on Software and Systems Engineering, until 2014 when SE@City became part of the Centre for Adaptive Computing Systems (CeNACS).

Christos holds a B.Sc. degree in Computer Science (1994) and an M.Sc. degree in the fields of Parallel & Distributed Systems and Machine Vision & Robotics (1997), both from the University of Crete at Heraklion, Greece. He also holds a Ph.D. degree in Informatics (2002) from the University of Rennes 1, France.

Before joining City University London, Christos worked as a programmer at the Machine Learning group of the Machine Vision & Robotics Laboratory at ICS-FoRTH (Heraklion, Greece) and as a researcher at the PLEIADES - Parallel & Distributed Systems Laboratory of ICS-FoRTH, the Solidor research project of IRISA (Rennes, France), the Arles research project of INRIA-Rocquencourt (Paris, France) and the Verimag research laboratory (Grenoble, France).

Research

Christos' principal research interests are in the area of software engineering and embedded systems, focusing in the development of methods and tools for the analysis, fine-grain control, optimisation and implementation of mission-critical and safety-critical, hard real-time embedded systems.
Also interested in Software Architectures, Security and Machine Learning.

While at City Christos has been/is currently involved as an investigator in the IoT@Work, SLA@SOI, SeCSE, Serenity and Pepers research projects.

Before joining City, Christos was an investigator in the MLT, Lydia, C3DS, DSoS, AMETIST and OMEGA European research projects, in the Expresso French RNTL research project and in the TinAster (France Telecom R&D) and ANACONDA (STMicroelectronics) industry-funded research projects.

Funding

Christos has received funding from the Rhônes-Alpes Region (France), the Royal Society (UK) and the EU.

He was the Primary Investigator from City's side of the IoT@Work (FP7-257367) STREP project within the objective ICT-2009-1.3: "Internet of Things and Enterprise Environments", which run from June 1, 2010 till May 30, 2013.
City's budget was € 398,624 - the other partners were Siemens (coordinator), Microsoft, FIAT, TXT e-solutions, and Institut Industrial IT.

Scheme/Course Directorship

Christos has been the Programme Director of the MSc in Software Engineering since January 2005 and during 2005–2006 he was also the Programme Director of the MSc in Electronic Business Systems (that is no longer offered).
He has also served for a number of years (2008-2014) as the Scheme Director for the Technical Scheme of Postgraduate Courses, which includes the following Msc courses currently:

Prospective applicants may also want to consider one of our other MSc courses at the Department of Computer Science as well.

Back in February 25, 2009, Christos had his 15 minutes of fame, when Graduate Prospects run an article featuring the MSc in Software Engineering course at City University London.

Teaching

Christos has taught an introductory module on Software Engineering (UG1), C++ (UG2, UG3, MSc), Concurrency (UG2, UG3, MSc), Distributed Systems (UG2, UG3), and has delivered two short courses on Real-Time Java (IN2P3/CNRS 2003 and ECI 2012) - the material can be accessed freely from the links at the left column (for current courses, due to an unfortunate server attack).
