Georgios Daskalakis

Director of Research

Dr. Georgios Daskalakis is a Director of Research at the Institute of Nuclear & Particle Physics (INPP) in the NCSR “Demokritos”, specializing in Experimental High-Energy Physics. He received his Bachelor’s degree (1994) from the Physics department at the National & Kapodestrian University of Athens (NKUA) and his PhD (1999) from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) working for the ALEPH/LEP experiment. He held a CERN Research Fellowship (2003-2005) and a Research Associate position (2005-2007) at the Physics Department, Imperial College of London, UK.  Dr. G. Daskalakis was hired at INPP as Researcher grade C’ in 2007. He was promoted to Senior Researcher in 2013 and from May 2020 he serves as Research Director.

Dr. Georgios Daskalakis area of specialty is the Experimental High Energy Particle Physics & the Statistical Data Analysis. He is a member of the CMS/LHC Collaboration from 1997. He has significant expertise in electron/photon trigger, reconstruction and selection and he is editor of several publications using the proton-proton collision data at the energies of 7, 8 and 13 TeV in the areas of Standard Model physics (W & Z inclusive cross sections), Exotic physics (Searches for new heavy resonances) , Top physics ( tt+jets cross  section).
