Georgia Tsiropoula serves as a Senior Researcher at ISARS, NOA, Greece. She received the B.S. degree in physics from the University of Athens, the D.E.A. degree in astrophysics from the University Paris VII, and the Ph.D. degree in solar physics from the University of Athens. Her scientific research is mainly focused on the fine-scale structure of the solar atmosphere, and also on sunspot oscillations, coronal loops, radiative transfer problems, and signatures of solar structures in the interplanetary medium. She has worked as a Visiting Research Fellow at the Laboratoire Stellaire and Planetaire (CNRS, France), as a Visiting Scientist at the Observatoire de Meudon (France), at the Ondrejov Observatory (Czech Republic), and at the Sterrekundig Instituut of Utrecht (The Netherlands) and as a visiting Observer at the Observatorio del Teide (Tenerife) and the Observatorio del Roque de los Muchachos (La Palma). She has been serving as a principal investigator or coinvestigator of several projects funded by the European Commission (EC) and the General Secretariat of Research and Technology (GSRT), as well as of several solar observational campaigns (two of them funded through OPTICON) with space-borne (such as SoHO, TRACE, and Hinode) and ground-based instruments (such as VTT, THEMIS, and DOT). She has been serving as a team coleader of two meetings held in 2009 and 2010 at the International Space Science Institute (ISSI) in Bern (Switzerland) on “Small-scale transient events and their role in coronal heating.” She has published 42 papers in refereed journals, 11 refereed papers in conference proceedings, 2 review papers, and approximately 60 papers in conference proceedings and special volumes/books. She has served three times as a member of an international committee for the prize award to a young solar physicist for an outstanding paper published in a peer-reviewed journal. She has been elected as Secretary of the Board of the Joint Organization for Solar Observations (JOSO) since 2005.
