Prof. Alex. Papayannis (Dipl. Ing., DEA, Ph.D.) is the Director of the Laboratory of Optoelectronics, Lasers and Applications, Research Professor of Atmospheric Physics, Laser Technology and Laser Remote Sensing, at the National Technical University of Athens and Visiting Professor at the Laboratory of Atmospheric Processes and their Interactions (LAPI) at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne. He is a LiDAR expert in vertical profiling of atmospheric parameters, (bio)aerosols, clouds and gases (O3, H2O, Glyoxal) in the troposphere, in combination with sun photometry, satellite data, in situ aerosol measurements and meteorological modelling. He has participated in 70 research projects (EU, NASA, ESA, GAW-WMO, INPE-Brazil, CNRS-France, and Greek National funds). He is founder of the RAYMETRICS S.A. lidar company (www.raymetrics.com), which is the first lidar company in the world with customers in throughout Europe, Americas, Asia, and Africa. He is founding member of the European lidar Network (EARLINET), as well as member (2008-2015), President (2015-2022), and Vice President (2022-2028) of the International Coordination Group for Laser Atmospheric Studies (ICLAS). He has served as Member of the Scientific Committee and Co-chair of more than 30 International Conferences, related to lidar atmospheric/meteorological applications. He has published 145 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 6 Book chapters and 250 papers in peer-reviewed International Conferences Proceedings. He has received more than 9.050 citations (h-index 49) in Google Scholar. He has supervised more 16 Ph.D. students and 60 M.Sc. Diploma Theses at NTUA.

Keywords: lasers, lidar, (bio)aerosols, clouds, ozone, water vapor, biomass burning, desert dust.
