Short Curriculum Vitae

George Kioseoglou received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Physics from the University of Thessaloniki. He obtained his doctoral degree in experimental solid state physics from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1999 in the area of spectroscopic studies of electronic states in semiconductor heterostructures. From 1999 to 2001, he was a post-doctoral research associate at the Department of Physics SUNY at Buffalo/Brookhaven National Laboratory (Long Island, New York). In 2002 he moved to Washington DC as a postdoctoral associate at Naval Research Laboratory (NRL)/George Washington University where he continued his work on efficient electrical spin injection and detection in semiconductors. From 2004 to 2006 he was a National Research Council (NRC) post-doctoral Fellow with the materials physics branch at NRL. In 2007 he was appointed Associate Professor at the Department of Materials Science and Technology of the University of Crete. Prof. Kioseoglou has shared 3 times the NRL Alan Berman research publication award for his outstanding work on efficient electrical spin injection in GaAs and Si spin-LEDs [PRB 62, 8180 (2000), PRL 89, 166602 (2002), Nature Physics 3, 542 (2007)]. He has co-authored over 85 scientific publications in refereed journals and contributed more than 200 conference presentations; he has 4 very highly cited papers in spintronics [APL 80, 1240 (2002)-882 citations, PRB 62, 8180 (2000)-644 citations, APL 82, 4092 (2003)-447 citations, Nature Physics 3, 542 (2007)- 479 citations (data from Google Scholar - March 2022)]. He is an active member of the American Physical Society and serves in APS and MMM conferences.
