Nonlinear waves in Space plasmas

Athena Talks - Kourakis
This Friday, 3rd of February at 10.00 CET the ATHENA Talks of Athena European University hosts Professor Ioannis Kourakis from the Khalifa University in UAE.
 
The title of the talk will be ‘Nonlinear waves in Space plasmas:overview of recent advancements on the interface between nonlinear science and plasma physics’.
 
Dr Ioannis (or Yannis) Kourakis is based at the Department of Mathematics at Khalifa University of Science and Technology (Abu Dhabi) where, asides his academic duties, he is currently Theme Leader for Magnetospheric Modeling at the KU Space and Planetary Sciences Center (since 2021). He has held academic and research positions in the UK, in Germany, in Belgium, in Brazil and in the UAE. He has also served in various editorial and consulting roles in a number of international journals (including Scientific Reports by Springer Nature) and research funding bodies. His research focuses on nonlinear dynamics and soliton theory, with emphasis on nonlinear waves and shocks in Plasma Physics and in Space Science. Earlier work has spanned various areas, including optical instabilities, dissipative solitons, negative-refractive-index materials, Bose-Einstein condensates and hydrodynamics. He has published more than 250 articles in refereed journals and in conference proceedings. Based in the UAE since 2018, he has been awarded one ADEK/ASPIRE grant and two internally funded (KU) research awards as PI, on different projects, totaling 3.43M AED (approx. $1M).
