"Panagiotis Niarchos"

Professor Emeritus of Astronomy, University of Athens, Greece. He was born in Arfara Messinias, Greece. He received his B.Sc. in Mathematics from the University of Athens, an M.Sc. and an Ph.D. in Astronomy, both from the Victoria University of Manchester, U.K. He has worked at the University of Athens, as Assistant and Chief Assistant of the Laboratory of Astronomy. In 1982 he became Lecturer, in 1986 Assistant Professor and Associate Professor (1995-2008) at the Department of Physics of the same University. His scientific interests are centred to the Observational Astrophysics and especially to the observations and the theoretical studies of the Close Binary Stars (Eclipsing binaries, Degenerate Binary systems, Symbiotic binaries) and Pulsating stars. He has published more than 100 scientific papers on these subjects in international refereed journals and Bulletins of Variable star Observations. Also, he has presented more than 140 papers in international and Greek conferences. He has authored or co-authored textbooks and laboratory manuals and edited the proceedings of two international symposia on Binary Stars. He is the Co-editor of the Bulletin on Bibliography of Close Binary Stars, Commission 42 of the International Astronomical Union (IAU), member of the Organizing Committee of Commission 42 of the IAU (2006-2012) and referee to scientific journals and to scientific programs submitted in Greece and Czech Republic. He has served as Vice-Chairman of the Department of Physics, University of Athens, as Head of the Department of Astrophysics, Astronomy and Mechanics of the same University, and Director of the Laboratory of Astronomy of the same Department. Currently, he is the Head of the Department of Astrophysics, Astronomy and Mechanics and Director of the Gerostathopouleio Observatory of the University of Athens. He is a member of the IAU, Associate member of GAIA (ESA) working groups on photometry, radial velocities and double and multiple star systems, Member of the European Network of Excellence in Astroseismology and a founding member and Treasurer (1998-2002) of the Hellenic Astronomical Society (Hel.A.S.).
