Theodoros Samaras received the Physics degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1990; the MSc degree in Medical Physics (with distinction) from the University of Surrey, UK, in 1991; and the PhD degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1996. In 1998, he was with the BIOEM/EMC Group, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, Switzerland, where he was mainly involved with studying the temperature increase due to the absorption of electromagnetic energy in materials, and the effect of heat diffusion in electromagnetic dosimetry. He subsequently joined the Hyperthermia Unit, Erasmus Medical Centre, The Netherlands, where he conducted research on treatment quality of superficial microwave hyperthermia. In December 1999, he returned to the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he is currently an Assistant Professor. His research interests include numerical techniques with applications in biomedical technology, EMC, and telecommunications, as well as the therapeutic applications and safety of non-ionizing radiation. He is the (co-)author of more than 40 papers in the peer-reviewed literature. He is member of several national and international standardization committees and the national representative to European research co-ordination actions.
