Georgios A. Bertos, PhD, MBA graduated from Ionidios Honor School of Piraeus in 1987. He received his Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece in 1993 in Electrical & Computer Engineering and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA in 1999 in Electrical & Computer Engineering and in 2006 in Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University, Evanston, IL, USA, respectively. During his graduate studies at Northwestern University he was a member of the Northwestern University Prosthetics Research Laboratory (NUPRL). His research with Pr. Dudley S. Childress was focused on upper-limb microprocessor-based controllers, gait analysis and design of shock absorption prostheses for lower-limb amputees based on able-bodied characteristics. Georgios has also gained an M.B.A. from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business, Chicago, IL, USA (March 2014). From 2000 to 2005 he was a Software Lead and Engineering Manager at WMS Gaming. From 2007 to 2012 he was a Lead Systems Designer at Applied Science & Technology of Baxter Healthcare, Round Lake, IL, USA, leading design efforts (using System Design methodologies for Six Sigma) of future medical devices such as infusion systems, renal dialysis machines and medication error reduction systems. He received seven grants from Baxter to fund collaboration work that he initiated with Northwestern University faculty and he has been granted three patents. From 2016 to 2019, he was a Lead Systems Designer of a Services-Oriented Architecture (IaaS/PaaS) Platform integrating Internet of Medical Things (IoMTs) for active patient monitoring using distributed computing and machine learning, at GE Healthcare, WI, USA. He was a recipient of IKY fellowship from 1994-1997 and he also received in 2013 the prestigious EU Marie Curie Integration Grant (CIG) as a Postdoctoral Fellow for leading the design of a biomechatronics upper-limb prosthesis controller based on a master/slave robotics architecture at the Control Systems Laboratory (CSL) of NTUA working with Pr. Evangelos G. Papadopoulos. In 2014, he led team PYTHIA into the Qualcomm XPRIZE Tricorder competition (finalist 21st team out of 300 teams) to create the next medical tricorder device, a portable device to diagnose 13 health conditions and capture five real-time health vital signs. He is a Member of IEEE and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
