Spyridon-Nektarios Daskalakis was born in Heraklion, Greece, in 1991. He received with excellence his Engineering Diploma and the M.Sc. in Electronic and Computer Engineering from Technical University of Crete (TUC) in 2014 and 2016, respectively. He is currently working toward the PhD degree in School of Engineering & Physical Science from Heriot Watt university, Edinburgh UK. His current research interests include low-cost wireless sensor networks and RF energy harvesting. Particularly he focuses on backscatter scatter communication, batteryless sensors, PCB design, low cost software defined radio, environmental sensing and RF energy harvesting. He has received fellowship award for his project Aristeos (olive fly detection and monitoring with wireless sensor network) by the Clinton Global Initiative University 2014, Phoenix Arizona USA and the Onassis Foundation graduate studies 2015/16 scholarship. He is co-founder of kaloudia.com platform. Finally, he was the recipient for two short term scientific mission grands form COST Action IC1301 WiPE in Electrical and Computer Engineering, Georgia Institute of Technology (2016) and in Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya (2015).
