Colloquium Speaker: Dr. Angelos Vourlidas

JHU/APL on behalf of the WISPR Science Team

Dr. Vourlidas received his PhD in 1996 on ground-based radio observations of the solar corona. After that he moved to space-based coronal observations at the Naval Research Laboratory. Since 2014, he is the solar section supervisor at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (APL). His research focuses on the physics of the solar corona and on solar eruptions, in particular the problem of coronal mass ejections and their influence on the geospace environment. He is also heavily involved in space instrumentation and science management.  Dr. Vourlidas is the Project Scientist of the STEREO/SECCHI instrument suite, the WISPR imager on Parker Solar Probe, and the SoloHI imager on the Solar Orbiter mission.
