Alexandros Soumelidis is a senior research fellow and the head of the Measurements and Control Technology Group at the SCL. He educated in electric engineering with specialization in measurements and control at the Technical University of Budapest. He obtained his PhD in 2002 at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and habilitation in. 2013 at the Széchenyi István University (Győr) His main research interests include systems and control theory, signal processing, theory of signal representations, system modeling and identification, as well implementation issues of measurement and control systems. His teaching activities include measurement technologies, signal processing, system modeling, identification and control mainly focusing on mechatronic systems. He acts in three universities - Budapest University of Technology and Economics, Szent István University, Gödöllő, and Széchenyi István University, Győr - as a honorary associate professor, associate professor, and research professor, respectively. His application fields of interest include industrial and power production systems, aerial and ground vehicles, and - eventually - also medical electronics and diagnostics. He is a five-time recipient of the MTA SZTAKI Institute Award.
