Dr Michael Pikridas is a postdoctoral fellow at the Cyprus Instritute since April 2013. His main expertise covers the experimental characterization of atmospheric aerosols with respect to new particle formation, aerosol optical properties, and source apportionment. He has received a Ph.D. in chemical engineering from the University of Patras, Greece in 2012 and a bachelor degree in Chemistry from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2004.
He is currently managing the first long term observations station of key atmospheric pollutants in Cyprus, while participating in vertical profiling of ambient aerosol properties using unmanned aerial vehicles dedicated to atmospheric research studies.
Before joining the Cyprus Institute, he worked as research assistant in Brookhaven National Laboratory, U.S.A. where he characterized a novel aerosol size distribution instrument and as a laboratory manager at ICEHT-FORTH.
