OBITUARY IN MEMORY OF Dr JOHN POLYGIANNAKIS

 

The untimely demise of Dr John, M, Polygiannakis, on the 10th JUNE 2004, at the age of 37 has shocked his peers in the University of Athens. The departed, whom we all knew, was a devoted, industrious and diligent researcher whose interests ranged, from Solar Astronomy and Space Physics to the Self Organized Critical Systems.

The only position he ever occupied in the Academia was his brief service as a University of Athens functionary; a post which he resigned in order to dedicate his full energy to research. This, in addition to his scientific contributions, marks him as a singular personality, an idealist, focused on the pursuit of scientific knowledge rather than the pursuit of position, rank or funded project.

This is a tribute to his memory on behalf of all those who have worked with him, and who have held him in the highest esteem.
