Leandros Tassiulas was born in 1965, in Katerini , Greece. He obtained the Diploma in Electrical Engineering from the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki, Thessaloniki,Greece ,in 1987, and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in Electrical Engineering from the University of Maryland, College Park in 1989 and 1991 respectively.

From 1991 to 1995 he was an Assistant Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering, Polytechnic University, Brooklyn, NY. In 1995 he joined the Department of Electrical Engineering, University of Maryland, College Park, where he is now an Associate Professor. He holds a joint appointment with the Institute for Systems Research and is a member of the Center for Satellite and Hybrid Communication Networks, established by NASA.

His research interests are in the field of computer and communication networks with emphasis on wireless communications (terrestrial and satellite systems) and high-speed network architectures and management, in control and optimization of stochastic systems and in parallel and distributed processing.

Dr. Tassiulas received a National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Initiation Award in 1992, an NSF Faculty Early Career Development Award in 1995 and an Office of Naval Research Young Investigator Award in 1997. He coauthored a paper that got the INFOCOM `94 best paper award.
