Fotios Katsilieris received his engineering diploma from the University of Patras, Greece in 2006 and his MSc from the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH), Stockholm Sweden in 2009. During his studies, Fotios focused on automatic control, mainly on robotics.

From June 2010 until September 2013, Fotios held a Marie Curie fellowship at Thales Nederland BV, working on various aspects of sensor management in the context of the MC IMPULSE project. Fotios has also been a visiting researcher at Fraunhofer FKIE at Bonn, Germany and at NATO-STO Centre for Maritime Research and Experimentation (CMRE, formerly known as NURC) at La Spezia, Italy.

In September 2013, Fotios joined the MS3 group at TU Delft in order to finish his PhD. He was a member of Theme 4 of the STARS project where he extended his work on sensor management.

Fotios defended his PhD thesis, titled "Sensor management for surveillance and tracking: An operational perspective", on Thursday the 5th of March 2015. Fotios' dissertation can be found at the repository of TU Delft (link).

The main challenges that Fotios tries to address is how to allocate the limited sensor resources among diverse tasks, taking into account the end-user perspective. Towards this goal, Fotios explores the use of task-based, information-driven and threat/risk-based utility functions for sensor management.
