Georgios M. Kavoulakis
Georgios M. Kavoulakis was born in Heraklion, Crete, Greece, in 1968. He received his B.S. degree from the University of Crete in 1990 and his M.S. and Ph.D. degree from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA, in 1992 and 1996, respectively. After working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at NORDITA in Copenhagen, Denmark, in KTH, Stockholm, Sweden, and in LTH, Lund, Sweden, he moved to Crete, where he serves as an Associate Professor at the Department of Sciences of the Technological and Educational Institute of Crete. His main research interests are in the physics of confined and cold atomic systems, including superfluid properties (rotational properties, vortex states, persistent currents), nonlinear effects (solitary waves), relaxation processes, and in particular in connection with the finiteness of these systems, with the effect of reduced dimensionality and with the effect of topologically nontrivial confining potentials. He is also interested in the physics of excitons in semiconductors (optical properties, nonlinear effects, and transport properties) in connection with the effect of quantum effects and of Bose-Einstein condensation.
