Research output

Dimitris Angelakis has been invited to deliver more 35  talks in international meetings including the annual American Physical Society meeting, the Quantum Simulations meetings in Benasque Spain and the ICTP workshops. He has also delivered more than 40 invited seminars in universities and research institutions worldwide. He has published around 50 papers,  with a total of more than  1700 citations and , Η=21, i10=29. He has organized and  edited the proceedings of a NATO ASI conference, a joint school and workshop in Quantum Simulations, a review article for IOP Reports in Progress in Physics,  and also edited a volume for Springer on quantum simulations with hybrid atom-photon systems. His work has been highlighted in the scientific media with articles n New ScientistNature Research Highlights,  The Innovation MagazinePhysics World and BIMA Science among others (see popular articles).

Funding and service

For his research activities, he has raised the equivalent of more than  2 million Euros in UK, Greece and Singapore and have evaluated research proposals for  the ERC Starting Grant scheme, European Young Investigator Award Scheme, the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research and the  Swiss Research Council. He has also  served in various faculty committees in St Catharine’s College,-University of Cambridge, the Technical University of Crete and the Centre for Quantum Technologies Singapore. Recently he was invited to join the Management Committee of the of the EU COST Action “Nanoscale Quantum Optics”  representing Greece. He has  refereed for most physics journals including PRL, Nature, Science  and currently serves in the editorial board of  Springer EPJ Quantum Technology where he  also was the lead guest editor of a special issue on “Quantum Simulations” published in 2014.  He has successfully supervised  a number of MSc students, four postdoctoral scholars (two moved into faculty jobs straight after), one PhD student ( currently a postdoc in Oxford University) and currently advising three more PhDs and three postdocs.



Awards he has received include the “Institute of Physics, Quantum Electronics and Photonics Thesis Prize” in 2002 for the best PhD thesis in UK in the field if Quantum Electronics and Photonics, the  “St Catharine’s College Cambridge JRF in Physics” in 2001,  the “Valerie Myescrough  Prize 2000” for graduate students performance, and has been an IKY (Greek State Scholarship Foundation) scholar for the consecutive years 1993-1997 (undergraduate), and 1998-2001(postgraduate).
