Emmanouil Proestakis graduated from the Department of Applied Physics at the Sciences of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) - Greece (2011). He received his MSc in the field of “Environmental Physics” from the Institute of Environmental Physics (IUP) of the University of Bremen – Germany (2013). In early 2018 he acquired his PhD diploma on the field of atmospheric remote sensing from space for depicting the aerosol connection with atmospheric electricity from the University of Patras (UoP) – Greece. Since then Emmanouil Proestakis has been contacting research at the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) Institute of the National Observatory of Athens, focusing on the retrieval of atmospheric parameters using passive and active remote sensing techniques. His main interest is on atmospheric aerosol properties and the interactions with clouds. He has been working mostly on research related to the properties of mineral dust, from synergies of active and passive remote sensing synergies and methods and on the validation of space-borne instrumentation against state-of-the-art ground-based observations. As a researcher he has participated in 4 international projects and 2 experimental campaigns related to atmospheric physics. He has 15 publications in peer review journals (h-index=7 source: Web of Science).


Environmental physics focused on satellite practices on active and passive space applications, cloud physics, physical and mathematical climatology.
