. . This is my home page where you could find some information about my fields of interest and also my publications in journals or in conferences. Up to December 2017 I have:
My fields of interest in astrophysics are focused on Solar and Space Physics. In particular, I study interplanetary coronal mass ejections (ICMEs) and their effects on Earth and the interplanetary space in general.
. . During my postgraduate studies in Astrophysics I introduced a new indicator of solar activity based on CMEs (Pi - index). The introduction of this index into cosmic ray intensity modulation models significantly improved the results of these models.
. . During my Ph.D., and in particular from October 2014 until today, I am responsible for the daily Space Weather Report of the Athens Space Weather Forecasting Center (ASWFC) The daily surveillance of the Sun, using as many as possible data from satellites such as SOHO, SDO, ACE, DSCOVR, GOES etc. and the information of the public about space weather conditions made this effort unique in Greece. On the current research program of the European Space Agency (ESA) I am responsible for the monthly Solar & Cosmic Ray Activity Newsletter.
. . A very important result revealed from my PhD thesis it was a model about the estimation of the time of arrival of the shock of an Earth-directed ICME. This model is very useful for Space Weather predictions and from May 2017 is one of the registered methods in the CME Scoreboard - Community Coordinated Modeling Center (CCMC) NASA - CME Propagation Models.
. . I am a member of the Athens Cosmic Ray group from 2006 and I worked in a number of research projects. During these years, I developed programming skills using Interactive Data Language (IDL). I actively participate in the experiment of the Athens Neutron Monitor Station of the Athens Cosmic Ray group in many sections (data processing, event analysis such as GLEs, operation hardware and software).
. . I participated in 10 international conferences, 3 summer schools and I have taken a lot of scholarships for most of them. Analytical catalogue of my publications, attending conferences, scholarships etc. are available on my CV.
. . In November 2013 in ESWW10, I receive the title of "Wise Scientist ESWW10" ranking the highest score on the official online quiz of the conference.
. . As a member of scientific group my works on research projects gave me the experience and utilize independent research skills such as reading demanding texts and computer programming. Now I have a high level on data analysis and calculating techniques using programming languages such as Interactive Data Language (IDL), FORTRAN, Mathematica, and Origin package.
