Dr. Sofoklis Sotiriou

Head of R&D Department, Ellinogermaniki Agogi



Sofoklis Sotiriou has worked in the field of Neutrino Astrophysics, involved in NESTOR, a deep underwater muon and neutrino detector at the Mediterranean Sea (1992-1998). He was member of the research team of Physics Laboratory of the University of Athens.

His main research topics were:

  • Monte Carlo Simulation of the detector Muon reconstruction,
  • Development and construction of optical sensors (Optical Modules) for NESTOR detector,
  • Background measurements with NESTOR optical sensors,
  • Development of DAQ system for the two floor NESTOR detector,
  • Development of calibration system of the NESTOR detector.
