Short CV

Athanasios Kiourtis is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the University of Piraeus, Greece (Department of Digital Systems) with a focus on Digital Transformation and Optimus Data Exchange protocols. He received his BSc in Digital Systems in 2013 and MSc in Network-Oriented Systems in 2015, both from the Department of Digital Systems at the University of Piraeus. Since 2019, he holds a PhD from the University of Piraeus (Department of Digital Systems) in the field of Interoperability, with a focus on data transformation and interoperability services applied to heterogeneous healthcare infrastructures and applications. His general research interests lie with issues related to digital transformation, data exchange protocols, data and services interoperability and heterogeneity, big data analytics, as well as cloud services and infrastructures. In this context, he has participated in several EU and National funded projects (e.g. PolicyCLOUD, InteropEHRate, CrowdHEALTH), leading research for addressing issues related to data interoperability and analysis, as well as health information exchange, while he has also contributed to the aforementioned fields through multiple International Conference and International Journal publications. Regarding his Academic expertise, he has collaborated as an Academic Associate with the University of West Attica, Greece (Department of Industrial Design and Production Engineering, Department of Informatics and Computer Engineering), the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece (Faculty of Nursing), the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (School of Electrical and Computer Engineering), and the University of Piraeus, Greece (Department of Digital Systems).

Personal Research Topics

Data Interoperability Services in Heterogeneous Infrastructures and Health Applications

Approach to converting health data to HL7 FHIR standard, taking into account both the semantics and the syntactic similarity of the ontologies formed by the health data and resources of the HL7 FHIR standard.

Optimal Data Exchange Protocols

Approach to exchange data in short-range distances using a newly specified Device-to-Device (D2D) protocol on top of Bluetooth technologies, supporting the requirements of a citizen and a Healthcare Practitioner during a medical visit scenario.

Data Cleaning Services

Generic approach for cleaning raw data in real-time deriving from both streaming and non-streaming sources.

Lossles Data Compression

Approach for compressing textual, audio, and image data through specifically parameterized and adapted lossless serialization and deserialization algorithms.

Data Prioritization Techniques

Approach for prioritizing the data to be exchanged during a medical visit scenario, through classification techniques which are based on historical data, health policies, medical specialty, etc.
