Helen C. (Nelly) Leligou
associate professor at Technological Educational Institute of
Her research interests lie in the area of protocol design and
communication systems, including a) routing protocols and trust
management in Wireless Sensor Networks and b) access control mechanisms in broadband
networks including HFC, PON, WDMmetro and core networks. Currently she is working on
security protocols for wireless sensor networks. Her research
results have been published in more than 100 scientific journals
and conferences. She has participated in several EU-funded ACTS, IST and ICT research projects in the above areas.

Oct. 2007- now
Helen C. Leligou is currently associate professor of the
Technological Educational Institute of Halkida (TEIHAL).
She is active in the research area of sensor networks,
designing and evaluating novel trust management systems
and routing protocols for large dense sensor networks
and reconfigurable sensor nodes. She is the scientific
coordinator of the DRAGON
project and participates
the TROLLS project.
She has also participated (acting also as WP leader) in
EU-funded projects (FP7- AWISSENET, ARTEMIS-
SMART and FP7-VITRO projects) and national research
projects (namely in the
EXECHON project, dealing with Vehicular Networks).
She is a research associate at the Telecommunications
Laboratory of the National Technical University of
Athens (NTUA). She has participated in several EU
research programs in the areas of broadband networking
(ACTS-ATHOC, AROMA, IST-DAVID, PRO3, GIANT, NOBEL I,
NOBEL II, MUSE I, MUSE II). She has studied medium
access control protocols for Hybrid Fiber Coaxial
systems, for Passive Optical Networks operating at
gigabit rate (GPON technology), for metropolitan WDM
rings as well as the allocation of the protocol
processor resources targeting (in all systems) the
efficient support of different Quality of Service
Levels. From 2004-2007, she is investigating control
architectures for Optical Burst-switched Networks as
well as the design of a generic scheduling block for a
next-generation DSLAM. In the framework of the
previously mentioned EU-projects, she was responsible
for the implementation in hardware (mainly in FPGA but
also in ASIC technology, using VHDL language) of the
designed and evaluated real-time control protocols.
She has published 37 articles in journals, more than 55 in
conferences (more than 10 invited), and more than 7 in books.
She has also contributed to the IETF NWG ROLL group.
Her work has been cited more than 400 times.
She acts as reviewer for several IEEE and Elsevier
journals, she is TPC member in various conferences and
has organised workshops
