Ioannis Daglis

Ioannis A. Daglis is a Professor of Space Physics at the University of Athens, Department of Physics. Before his appointment at the University of Athens, he was the Director of the Institute for Space Applications and Remote Sensing for six years (2006-2012) and the Director of the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing for one year (2012-2013).
His scientific expertise pertains to space physics (with an emphasis on the electromagnetic coupling between the Sun and magnetized planets) and space applications and technology. His main research achievements refer to the dynamics of geospace magnetic storms, the ring current and the Van Allen radiation belts.
The international recognition of Prof. Daglis’ scientific standing is reflected in a series of invitations for participation in space missions and research project consortia, as well as in international and European scientific committees. Among others, he is a Full Member of the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA), the Editor-in-Chief of Annales Geophysicae (the official journal of the European Geosciences Union in the field of Solar Terrestrial Physics) and Scientific Discipline Representative to SCOSTEP (Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics). In 2006 he was appointed by NASA as a Member of the Science Review Panel for the Radiation Belt Storm Probes Mission (later renamed to Van Allen Probes Mission). In 2010 he was invited to contribute to the Design Study of Space Weather Instruments for the Space Situational Awareness programme of the European Space Agency (ESA).
He has published 90+ refereed scientific papers, plus 40+ other scientific publications (reports, proceedings) and 4 space physics books (as Editor and Co-Author). He has more than 2000 citations in ISI (3400+ in Google Scholar), out of which more than 1700 are third-party citations; and an h-index of 25 in ISI (31 in Google Scholar). He has been the Project Coordinator of 1 EC-funded, 6 ESA-funded projects and 7 nationally funded projects, and the Partner Leader in 5 EC-funded projects, 4 ESA-funded and 1 nationally funded project, with a total budget of 4.6 M€ (total accumulated budget of all partners: 25.7 M€).
