Tech. degree from the same university in 1982 (Ph.D. thesis entitled “ZnO photoeffects under galvanostatic and potentiostatic conditions ”). He is currently a Professor at the Laboratory of Physical Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. His research interests include photoelectrochemistry of semiconductors, photoelectrochemical solar cells, heterogeneous and homogeneous photocatalysis, advanced oxidation processes, solar detoxification and disinfection of wastewaters, as well as drinking water and air. His most recent research efforts are focused on hydrogen production by using photoelectrochemical/photosynthetic processes. He was an organizer of 3 international conferences on the environmental applications of the advanced oxidation processes, he acts as a referee for most of the journals in the area of environmental science, and he serves as a Guest Editor of 4 special issues. He was a Director of the Division of Physical, Analytical and Environmental Chemistry, Department of Chemistry (2009–2011).
