Theodoros Samaras received the Physics degree from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1990; the MSc degree in Medical Physics (with distinction) from the University of Surrey, UK, in 1991; and the PhD degree from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1996. In 1998, he joined the BIOEM/EMC Group, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich, Switzerland, where he was mainly involved with studying the temperature increase due to the absorption of electromagnetic energy in tissues, and the effect of heat diffusion in electromagnetic dosimetry. He subsequently moved to the Hyperthermia Unit, Erasmus Medical Centre, The Netherlands, where he conducted research on treatment quality of superficial microwave hyperthermia for cancer treatment with a Marie-Curie Fellowship from the European Commission. In December 1999, he returned to the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, where he is currently an Associate Professor. His research interests include numerical techniques and computer modelling with applications in biomedical technology and telecommunications, as well as the therapeutic applications and safety of non-ionizing radiation. He has served as a member of several national and international standardization committees and as the national representative to European research co-ordination actions. He is a member of the Scientific Committee on Emerging and Newly Identified Health Risks (SCENIHR) of the European Commission.
