Program Manager, Geospace Studies
Konstantinos S. Kalogerakis, Ph.D., joined SRI in December 1999.
Kalogerakis’ research interests include the study of energy transfer processes in excited electronic states relevant to the upper terrestrial and planetary atmospheres. He has also worked with Gregory Faris, Ph.D. on nonlinear spectroscopy techniques to study stimulated scattering in supercritical fluids, and on biomedical and microfluidics projects.
During his graduate studies at Stanford University, he studied the microscopic dynamics of gas-phase chemical reactions using laser spectroscopic, mass-spectrometric, and molecular beam techniques. As a postdoctoral fellow at Oxford University, U.K., Kalogerakis complemented his background with studies on the stereodynamics of chemical reactions. From 1996 to 1998, he was a college lecturer at Keble College, University of Oxford, UK.
