Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow Dr. Apostolos Argyris is hosted by the IFISC (UIB-CSIC) under the supervision of the faculty member Dr. Ingo Fischer.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellow

Dr. Apostolos Argyris received the B.Sc. degree in Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece (1999), the M.Sc. degree in Microelectronics & Optoelectronics from the University of Crete, Greece (2001) and the Ph.D. degree from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, National & Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), Greece (2006). He also received the B.Sc. degree as an Observer Meteorologist from the Hellenic National Meteorological Service in 2005. During the period 2000-2001 he was with the Foundation of Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) as a research assistant, working on fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) fabrication and applications in optical communications and optical sensing. In 2001 he joined the Optical Communications Laboratory of the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, NKUA as a PhD candidate. After his PhD defense, he became an associate research scientist of the same group until 2016. During 2006-2009 and 2014-2015 he was appointed as a part-time adjunct lecturer in the Departments of Computer Engineering, Telecommunications and Networks and Informatics of the University of Thessaly, Greece. Since 2016 he is a Marie-Skłodowska Curie Fellow at the Instituto de Física Interdisciplinar y Sistemas Complejos (IFISC), Universitat de les Illes Balears (UIB), Spain. He has participated in 11 research projects, funded by the European Union and the Greek General Secretariat of Research and Technology. He has published 40 papers in international refereed journals and 42 papers in international conference proceedings, while he is the main author of 3 book chapters. In 2006 he was distingushed as one of the "World’s Top Young Innovators 2006" from the Technology Review magazine of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, by receiving the "TR35 Award". This is an annual selection of the world’s top 35 innovators in research, business and entrepreneurship under the age of 35. The same year he was awarded the "Ericsson Telecommunications Award 2006" as a Greek nominee for the wider South-East Europe, for his PhD thesis. He serves as a reviewer for several research journals of the IEEE, AIP, OSA, ELSEVIER, Taylor & Francis publishing organizations. His research interests include nonlinear dynamics in semiconductor lasers, optical communication systems, secure communications, optical sensing, photonic devices, data analysis, classification algorithms and reservoir computing.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Supervisor

Ingo Fischer received his Diploma and Ph.D. degrees in physics from Philipps University Marburg (Germany) in 1992 and 1995, respectively. He was at the Technical University of Darmstadt (Germany) from 1995 to 2004, and at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Belgium) from 2005 to 2007. In 2007, he became a Full Professor in photonics at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh (U.K.). Since 2009, he has been a Professor at the Institute for Cross-Disciplinary Physics and Complex Systems, a joint center of the Spanish National Research Council and the University of the Balearic Islands, Palma de Mallorca (Spain). His current research interests include nonlinear photonics and neuro-inspired information processing, and in particular, the emission properties and dynamics of modern photonic sources, photonic computing, coupled laser systems, synchronization of lasers, and utilization of chaos. He received the Research Prize of the Adolf-Messer Foundation in 2000, and the first Hessian Cooperation Prize of the Technology Transfer Network in 2004. He has authored or co-authored more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals and has been PI of 19 projects financed by European Union, German Research Foundation, Spanish Ministry and other institutions.
