He studied Mathematics at the University of Athens and moved to the Univ. of Birmingham in 1953 to complete his PhD in theoretical physics at the age of 37. In 1956 he became one of the first members of CERN's Theory Division where he developed with K. Wildermuth, the cluster model of nuclei. In 1960 he returned to Greece and became scientific director of the "Demokritos" National Researcher Center, where he established the first graduate school for physics in Greece. His drive and judgment were highly influential in promoting Greek science policy and research. From 1967 to the end of his career he worked at the University of Tuebingen (Germany).
