Obtained his university degree in Chemistry in 2004 and his master’s degree in 2006 (Uni. of Crete, GR). He received his doctoral degree in Atmospheric Chemistry from the University of Crete in 2009, as a scholar of the General Secretariat for Research and Technology of Greece. During his Ph.D., he performed atmospheric chemistry model simulations, and he specifically focused on the development of novel modeling tools in state-of-the-art chemistry-transport global models, to study of the gas- and particulate-phase of the troposphere via heterogeneous processes. He continued his research on atmospheric chemistry and physics as a postdoctoral fellow in the Environmental and Chemical Processes Laboratory (ECPL, Uni. of Crete), participating in numerous European and international projects. In 2014 he was awarded as a Fulbright Fellow and moved to Columbia University (NY, USA), where he conducted research on cloud-aerosol interactions via multiphase processes. During his postdoctoral research, he particularly focused on the impact of multiphase processes on the atmospheric nutrient deposition over the oceans, via the synergistic use of model simulations and in-situ observations. These model approaches of the air-quality impact on aerosol bioavailability provided new insights towards understanding the atmospheric cycles of gaseous pollutants, organic aerosols and nutrient-containing aerosols (i.e., Fe, P, and N). In 2016, he received a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions Individual Fellowship (IF) (Utrecht University, Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, and KNMI), aiming to further study the implications of the aforementioned processes for carbon cycle and climate, focused on the coupling of i) air-quality, ii) aerosol deposition and iii) carbon cycle, with the European state-of-the-art Earth System Model, the EC-Earth. In 2018 he moved to the Institute for Environmental Research and Sustainable Development at the National Observatory of Athens, as an Associate Research Fellow in Atmospheric Chemistry and Climate Modelling. His current research focuses on atmospheric chemistry-climate interactions, including impacts on the oceanic biogeochemical cycles.
