I am professor of Applied Mathematics in the University of Crete and collaborating member of IACM-FORTH.

I am working on wave propagation problems, mainly with asymptotic methods.

On the applied side I am interested for applications in underwater acoustics, geophysics and phase-space quantum mechanics.
