Dr Georgios Bargiannis (George Baryannis) joined the University of Huddersfield as a Research Assistant in 2015, before becoming a lecturer in September 2016. He is a member of the Planning, Autonomy and Representation of Knowledge (PARK) Group, conducting research on knowledge representation and reasoning, focusing on rule-based activity recognition in smart home settings, leveraging multi-modal sensor infrastructures.

He received his DiplEng in Electronic and Computer Engineering from the Technical University of Crete in 2006 and his MSc and PhD in Computer Science from the University of Crete in 2009 and 2014. From 2007 to 2014, he was a Research Assistant at the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research & Technology – Hellas (FORTH).

Research and Scholarship

My overall research focus is on the area of knowledge representation and reasoning and related applications. Within that area, I am currently interested in research topics related to Rule-based Reasoning, Activity Recognition, Ambient Intelligence Semantic Web and the Internet of Things.

I am also very much interested in applying knowledge representation and reasoning in the area of Service Science, with topics ranging from Service-Oriented Computing, Service Composition and Specification, Semantic Web Services and Cloud Computing.
