Dr. Fotiadis’ main research interests include wearable systems, multiscale modelling and intelligent processing of medical and related data. He developed wearable systems for the monitoring, treatment, motivation and coaching for patients with neurodegenerative diseases and other chronic conditions. Those systems combine a set of sensors and biosensors with decision making tools and patient/ecosystem feedback, as well as behavioral models and patient adherence mechanisms. In modelling, he developed multiscale models for the prediction of atheromatic plaque growth, based on realistic reconstruction of arteries from various imaging modalities. He pioneered the modelling of complex human structures, such as bones, to perform in silico clinical trials of various biomedical systems. He employed machine learning techniques to develop predictive models for chronic diseases, exploiting medical, lifestyle, environmental, and genetic data which are integrated with existing knowledge and models to improve diagnostic and predictive accuracy. He works in the harmonization and integration of data from longitudinal cohorts.

Dr. Fotiadis is the recipient of many awards, including the Academy of Athens Award and active member of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, being a member of the Technical Committee of Biomedical and Health Informatics and the Chairman of the IEEE EMBS Greek Chapter. Dr. Fotiadis coordinated the organization of many EMBS conferences and other events."
