Evangelos Karfopoulos received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece in 2006. He received the PhD degree for his research on the "Optimal Management of Electric Vehicles for their efficient and effective integration into electricity networks", in 2017 from the same school. Since 2008, he works as researcher at the Electric Power Devision of NTUA in the e-mobility area, distributed optimization algorithms and java programming. He has actively participated in several European projects (e.g. MERGE, Integral, FastInCharge, Cotevos, SHARQ) and national projects with HEDNO. He has been employed by the Public Power Corporation and the Hellenic Distribution System Operator as researcher on e-mobility aspects and metering specifications.Currently, he is a senior researcher at the Smart RUE research group of NTUA and serves as a tutor in Power System Analysis courses. Moreover, he is external consultant of the HEDNO for e-mobility aspects since 2016. His research interests include development of integrated management systems and techniques for efficient integration of electric vehicles in electricity grids and multi-agent energy systems organized based on distributed management concepts. He is member of IEEE and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
