Christos Papadopoulos was born in Munich, Germany in 1981. After obtaining a first class degree in Computer Science from the University of Liverpool, I have been working in research with the Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis (PRImA) research lab since 2003; first in the University of Liverpool and currently in the University of Salford since 2005. I am currently employed as a lecturer in the School of Computing, Science & Engineering of the University of Salford (since April 2015).
My main research interests lie in the area of historical document digitisation and preservation. During my employment at Salford I have been involved in major EU-funded projects and have focused on the creation, organisation and ground-truthing of various evaluation datasets. I am especially interested in working with web related technologies and integrating such technologies in my research work. Recently I have developed an interest in the Information Security area and am currently investigating how to contribute in research relating to this field.
In teaching, I have been in charge of the organisation and delivery of modules in various topics, including Programming, Web Development and Information Security and have been involved in the co-supervision of projects ranging from group assignments to final year and masters dissertations.
