Since 1991 he has been with the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus and he served as Vice Rector of the University (2002-2006). His research interests include eHealth, computational intelligence, diagnostic and prognostic systems, and system modeling & identification of brain activity. He is the section editor (eHealth) of the journal Technology and Health Care, served as area editor of the journal IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, and member of the editorial board of the journal of Intelligent Systems. He is the founder of the Computational Intelligence lab and co-director of the eHealth lab of the University of Cyprus. He has taken part in European Commission initiatives for promoting the Information Society, especially the Euro-Mediterranean partnership and the eHealth initiatives. He coordinated the team that prepared for the Ministry of Health of Cyprus the specifications and the design of its current health information system. He designed and teaches two courses on eHealth at the University of Cyprus for the School of Medicine and the Department of Computer Science. He attends regularly the eHealth Ministerial Forum week as invited speaker with the following topics:
Cross border care – A Challenge and an opportunity for Cyprus
eHealth for the Citizen for Better Privacy and Data Protection
In August 2015 he has been appointed as personal advisor to the Cyprus Minister of Health on all eHealth matters, especially in proposing the road map for implementing the National Health System and monitoring its steps. In April 2016 he has been appointed by the President of the Republic of Cyprus as Presidential Counselor for eHealth and matters related to the national health system reform.
