Dimitris G. Chachlakis, Ph.D.

Contact and social media presence


I earned the Diploma degree in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Crete, Greece, in 2016 and the Ph.D. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Rochester Institute of Technology, Rochester NY, USA, in 2021.

My research interests are in the areas of robust multimodal (tensor) data analytics, signal processing, machine learning, and convex/non-convex optimization.

I am a member of the IEEE Signal Processing Society and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM). I have served as a Reviewer to the IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON SIGNAL PROCESSING, IEEE SIGNAL PROCESSING LETTERS, IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON PATTERN ANALYSIS AND MACHINE INTELLIGENCE, IEEE ACCESS, IEEE PHOTONICS JOURNAL, ELSEVIER DIGITAL SIGNAL PROCESSING, and IEEE conferences. I was a recipient of the 2018 Gerondelis Foundation Graduate Student Scholarship Award and the 2019 A. G. Leventis Foundation Graduate Student Scholarship Award.
