John Antoniadis

Associate Researcher @ FORTH Institute of Astrophysics



I am an Associate Researcher at the FORTH Institute of Astrophysics, leading the Stellar Afterilfe and Transients group.
I'm also the PI of the ARGOS Telescope Project
I earned my PhD from the University of Bonn in 2013 (but working at the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy ), under the supervision of Michael Kramer and Paulo Freire.
Between 2014 and 2017, I was a Dunlap Fellow at the University of Toronto. Before moving to FORTH, I was back in Bonn as a researcher at MPIfR and a lecturer at AIfA, in Norbert Langer's group.

My ORCID is 0000-0003-4453-3776
