Post-Doc Researcher

Nikolaos Siomos currently works at the Department of Physics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Nikolaos does research in Atmospheric Optics and Aerosol monitoring with Remote Sensing Techniques, specializing in lidar and sunphotometer measurements. Their most recent publication is 'Comparison of two automated aerosol typing methods and their application on an EARLINET station’.

Post-Doc Researcher

I have studied physics and environmental physics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and atmospheric physics and climate modelling at the Max Planck Institute for Meteorology, Germany. I have worked as a post-doctoral research associate at the Department of Physics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, the department of Geosciences, Aarhus University, Denmark, the Atmospheric Oceanic and Planetary Physics lab, University of Oxford, UK and my latest assignment is at the National Observatory of Athens. My main field of interest is the role of external forcings to the climate system with the aid of different hierarchy of models: from toy-models to comprehensive chemistry earth system models. I have performed highly conceptualized simulations with ECHAM general circulation model, MESSy chemistry climate model and HadGEM Earth system model, which have been instrumental in helping to understand how large-scale flows respond to radiative forcing. At NOA, I am using a global climate model to study effects Saharan dust transport on regional and global scales.

PhD Candidate

Giorgos Papangelis obtained his Bachelor Degree in 2004 from the Department of Physics, Section of Environmental Physics and Meteorology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), Greece. He also participated in the Erasmus program in 2002-2003 and during this time he studied at the Department of Physics at the University of Seville, Spain. On 2009 he obtained his Masters Degree on Environmental Physics and Meteorology at the NKUA. He worked as a contracted researcher on various research projects at the Group of Numerical Applications in the Atmosphere of the NKUA Physics Department (2009-2018) and also at the Institute for Environmental Research & Sustainable Development of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA). His research topics are related to:

  • Atmospheric Boundary Layer physics
  • Land - atmosphere interactions
  • Large Eddy Simulation (LES) of the atmospheric boundary layer over heterogeneous surfaces.
  • Mesoscale atmospheric simulations (e.g. WRF model)
  • Data assimilation
  • Application of the RF model and optimizing the representation of urban surface characteristics - urban microclimate and urban planning.

Currently he is a Research Fellow at the the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS)

for the National Observatory of Athens, under the ReACT team. 

Post-Doc Researcher

Sotirios Mallios received his B.Sc. in Physics with an orientation in Electronics, Computers, Telecommunications and Control from the Department of Physics of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) in 2005. In 2015 he earned his Ph.D in Electrical Engineering from the Electrical Engineering Department of the Pennsylvania State University, USA.
He worked as a Research Assistant at the Microwave and Optics Application Group at Physics Department of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (2001-2010), and at the Atmospheric Electrodynamics Group at the Electrical Engineering Department of the Pennsylvania State University (2010-2015). In 2019 he joined the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing (IAASARS) of the National Observatory of Athens (NOA) to work as a Post-doc Researcher.
