George Kallos obtained the B.S. degree from the School of Mathematics, University of Athens (1975), and the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in geophysical sciences from Atmospheric Sciences Division, School of Geophysical Sciences, Georgia Institute of Technology, USA (1985). He is a Professor at the Division of Physics of Environment Meteorology, School of Physics, the University of Athens. He has held also the position of Senior Research Associate at SUNY/ASRC, Albany, NY, USA. He is the Director of the Division of Physics of Environment-Meteorology, and leads the Atmospheric Modeling and Weather Forecasting Group (AM&WFG) (12 postdoctoral and Ph.D. students). He has 30 years of experience in atmospheric modeling working at the University of Athens, Georgia Institute of Technology, Colorado State University, SUNY/ASRC, and National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Dr. Kallos has 85 publications in scientific journals, 170 presentations and publications in conference proceedings, 8 contributions in books and more than 180 other publications in subjects related to atmospheric physics and chemistry. Most of them are related to atmospheric modeling. His published work has more than 2000 citations from others. He has participated in 76 projects (in 58 of them was coordinator). He guided 7 Ph.D. degrees up till now and more than 40 M.S. theses. Currently, he has 6 Ph.D. and 5 M.S. students. He served on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Atmosphere Ocean Systems (JAOS). He is an Associate Editor of Environmental Fluid Mechanics. He was awarded the International Union of Air Pollution Prevention Association (IUAPPA) Award for his work on long range transport and air quality in the Mediterranean Region (2004). He contributed as a Referee in several scientific journals. His current research activities are related to atmospheric, climatic, and sea-state model development and forecasting.
