Mihalis received his B.Sc. in chemistry from the University of Crete, Greece, in 1999. In 2002 and 2005, he received his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in environmental and analytical chemistry from the same university, in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute (Mainz). His Ph.D thesis was entitled “Nitrate radicals (NO3.): Their role in controlling the Nitrogen cycle and the Oxidizing Capacity of the atmosphere”. He has been employed as a post-doc researcher by the ECPL laboratory in Crete (2005-2006), the IUP institute in Bremen (2006-2009, A.v.Humboldt and Marie Curie fellowships) and the Academy of Athens (2010-today). Since 2012, he joined the Environmental Energy, Environment and Water Research Center of the Cyprus Institute as a Research Scientist. Mihalis has more than 15 years of experience in atmospheric chemistry and physics and he is an author of more than 35 peer reviewed publications and 100 presentation in international conferences. Since 2000, Mihalis worked full time as a principle investigator/scientific partner in 15 national and international projects.

Research Interests:

Mihalis's main scientific interests are related to atmospheric Chemistry and Physics including radical measurements (e.g., NO3 and ROX radicals), ground and space based remote sensing observations, physical and chemical properties of aerosols and radiative forcing, insights into the sulphur and nitrogen cycles, trace gases detection, climatology and chemical interactions in the atmosphere, photochemical studies, and validation of model simulations.
