My name is Georgios Vasilopoulos and I am researcher working in the field observational high energy astrophysics and the study of accreting objects. My research focuses particularly in X-ray pulsars and Ultra-luminous X-ray systems. I obtained my Phd from TUM while working at MPE. Following my doctoral studies I moved in New Haven while working at Yale University as a Postdoctoral associate for almost 3 years. I then moved to Strasbourg working as a postdoc and a member of the XMM-Newton SSC team and the « Galaxies, High Energy, Cosmology, Compact Objects & Stars » group.
Since February 2023 I have moved back to Greece as I have been awarded funding through the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (H.F.R.I
) to conduct research (see Project ASTRAPE
) in the University of Athens and in the Institute of Accelerating Systems and Applications (IASA
If you browse through these pages you will find some highlights of my research
