Short CV

9 September 2010

Dr. Theodoros GERALIS, currently, is a Principal Researcher at the Institute of Nuclear Physics at NCSR Demokritos. He studied physics at the University of Athens and graduated in 1983. He completed his post graduate studies in 1985 at NCSR Demokritos and defended his PhD Thesis at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 1991. His PhD concerned the study of CP Violation in the K meson at the CPLEAR experiment at CERN, where he contributed very significantly to the completion of the Hardwired Trigger processor and the physics studies of the Neutral Golden channels. He joined the Centre de Physique des Particules des Marseille (CPPM) group for the period 1988 – 1991 and the ETH Zurich group from 1991 to 1993 within the frame of the CPLEAR experiment. During the period 1993 - 1997 he played a leading role in physics analysis studies (tau-polarization, Bhabha events, luminosity measurements) in the OPAL experiment at LEP, as a Senior Research Associate at the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory (RAL). He was also committed to operating the End Cap Electromagnetic calorimeter of the OPAL experiment. His recent work is devoted in the CMS experiment at LHC and the CAST (CERN Axion Solar Telescope) experiment with the Institute of Nuclear Physics, NCSR Demokritos. He is leading the team that designed and constructed the Global Trigger Processor Emulator (GTPe) for CMS and the Data Acquisition system for the micromegas CAST detectors and he is member of the Institution’s Board for the TriDas system in CMS. GTPe is a system build to enable the CMS DAQ system installation, multi-functioning implementation and upgrade. The Micromegas DAQ has been used since 2003 for the CAST experiment data taking as well as in DAQ systems for the Micromegas development. Theodoros Geralis is actively involved in the design and development of the Micromegas detector for the CAST experiment and other applications. He worked for well known Particle Physics institutes like the CPPM, ETH-Zurich, RAL, NTUA and NCSR Demokritos. He has published over 250 papers in peer review High Energy Physics journals and has presented his work in numerous International Conferences. He is editor and referee in international Scientific Journals. He has been elected four times (1 year term) in the Council of the Greek Society for Particle Physics. He is also actively involved in Education: teaching at post graduate and graduate level, supervising of PhD, Master and Diploma theses.
