Short Curriculum vitae: 


Prof. I. Gkialas’s obtained his degree in Physics from the University of Athens. He completed his thesis work at the University of Michigan. Ann Arbor in the field of experimental High Energy Physics. He has carried out research as a member of the experiments in Brookhaven NAL, ZEUS and ATLAS at CERN. The results of his research have been published in well over 200 papers in international scientific journals and conference proceedings.

Together with other colleagues from the Finance ane Management Engineering (FME) department they have been involved in the  building of a renewable energy research infrastructure for educational as well as research reasons. A demonstration renewable energy plant is under development on Chios. FME plans to make renewable energy a significant element of its research activity.

Prof. I. Gkialas has accumulated significant teaching experience by teaching in the physics departments of university of Michigan and the university of Crete, the Technological Educational Institute of Athens and the university of the Aegean. He has significant experience in distant learning as tutor in the Hellenic Open University. He has tought physics and statistics courses in graduate programs in the University of Aegean and the National Technical University of Athens, while he has overseen several senior theses and a doctoral dissertation.

He is coordinator of the Applied Physical and Computational Sciences Laboratory (http://apcsl.fme.aegean.gr/) whose mission is research in fields ranging from high energy physics to renewable energy resources.

He was elected as Vice -Rector of Student affairs and international relations (2006-2010) and as FME chairman (2010-2012). He was also appointed by the government in the National Board of Research and Technology (2008-2011)

Ερευνητικά ενδιαφέροντα: 

The Physics group of The Finance and Management Engineering Department is organised around the Applied Physical and Computational Sciences Laboratoty (http://apcsl.fme.aegean.gr) and it is involved in research on a variety of subjects. In applied physics research, a project of developing a demonstration power plant based on renewables on the island of Chios is under way. Its aim is to employ different renewable energy sources, including various types of hybrid thermal/photovoltaic panels and manage the produced electricity using smart inverters and remote monitoring, control and management.In astroparticle Physics the group participates in the effort to design and build a large scale European Research Facility, the underwater neutrino teloescope (KM3). In addition, particle detectors have been deployed on Chios to study cosmic rays. This project has a scientific as well as an educational component and has been developed in collaboration with the Hellenic Open University Physics Laboratory (HELYCON). The APCSL has also developed RF hardware infrastructure with the aim to achieve cosmic ray detection through its electromagnetic signature. The group also participates in the ATLAS experiment at CERN in Geneva. The group is involved in the ATLAS muon system in close collaboration with the group of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. The purpose of the experiment is to study matter at the smallest scale.


Other interests: 

Work on establishing the "Hippocrates school of Health sciences" of the University of the Aegean on the island of Kos, Hippocrates' birth place.
