Ph.D. Astronomy – Boston University 1999
Dr. Georganopoulos was previously a National Research Council Fellow at NASA/Goddard (2002-2004) and a postdoctoral researcher at the Max Planck Institut für Kernpysik in Heidelberg (1999-2002).
My research interests focus on understanding the physics and the broader role of relativistic outflows or jets, mainly in active galaxies. Relativistic jets are invariably connected to accretion onto black holes. The kinetic power can reach levels comparable to that of the accretion luminosity, and their relativistically beamed synchrotron and inverse Compton (IC) emission can extend up to TeV energies, indicating extremely efficient particle acceleration.
