Biography / Academic Interests :
Dr. N. Antoniades received the B.S., M.S., M. Phil and Ph.D. degrees all in electrical engineering from Columbia University, NY, NY.
His Ph.D. work at Columbia University focused on modeling of optical components and WDM fiber optic communication systems and networks. During his industrial career with Bell Communications Research (Bellcore) and Corning Inc. Dr. Antoniades' research activities included design, engineering, and prototyping support of next generation Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) optical systems and networks, modeling of transmission impairments and research on new computer modeling techniques. During his tenure at Bellcore he contributed to the construction of the first experimental prototype multi-wavelength optical networks (MONET and ONTC) based on large-scale US government-supported research projects.
Dr. Antoniades is now a Professor in the Engineering Science and Physics Department at The College of Staten Island, The City University of New York where he joined in September of 2003.  His current research interests include access and metro fiber optic communication systems with a strong research focus on the use of fiber optic technologies for system implementations in avionics platforms. Prof. Antoniades is a senior member of the IEEE and a member of the Photonics society and has been a technical committee member of various conferences and workshops in the telecommunications field as well as a frequent reviewer in all major peer reviewed journals in the field. He currently holds two US patents and is the author or co-author of over eighty publications in leading peer-reviewed journals and conferences. Prof. Antoniades is also the author of several book chapters in the field of optical communications, a book on computer simulation as well as a children’s book.
