Brief CV

Dr. Apostolos Argyris (SCOPUS ID: 6602337882) received his B.Sc. degree in physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece (1999), his M.Sc. degree in physics with a specialization in microelectronics and optoelectronics from the University of Crete, Greece (2001), and his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Informatics and Telecommunications, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA), Greece (2006). In 2006, he received the TR35 Young Innovators Award 2006 from the Technology Review (Massachusetts Institute of Technology - M.I.T.), and the ERICSSON Award of Excellence in Telecommunications 2006, for his work in 'chaotic optical communications'. For the next 10 years, he was a post-doctoral researcher at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. In 2016, he joined IFISC (UIB-CSIC) with a post-doctoral European Commission Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship.

He holds an Associate Professor position at the University of the Balearic Islands and is a member of the Instituto de Física Interdisciplinar y Sistemas Complejos (IFISC). He holds the Spanish I3 certification while summing up three (3) six-year, three (3) five-year, and six (6) three-year academic experience.

His publication list includes 52 peer-reviewed works in international journals, with at least 4000 citations (Google Scholar) with an h-index of 27. He is the main author of 3 book chapters, while he co-authored 63 publications/presentations in international conference proceedings and workshops. He has participated in 20 National and European research projects, and he serves as a reviewer for the following publishing groups: Springer Nature, IEEE, AIP, OSA, Elsevier, Frontiers, MDPI, and Taylor & Francis. He serves also as a project evaluator of the REA of the European Commission (Horizon 2020, Horizon Europe).

His main research interests include complex photonics, nonlinear dynamics, coupled laser networks, chaotic oscillators and synchronization, unconventional optical communication systems, neuro-inspired information processing, photonic computing, optical chaos applications, and physical random number generation.

He currently participates in the following research projects:

- Adaptive Optical Dendrites - ADOPD (899265) - European Commission (2020-2024)

- European Training Network on Post-Digital Computing - POST-DIGITAL (860360) - European Commission (2020-2024)

- Information processing with coupled laser networks - INFOLANET (PID2022-139409NB-I00) - National project (2023-2026)
