Education :

Nick Loudas graduated from the 2nd high school of Grevena with a grade of 19.5/20 (‘Excellent’) and from 2017 until 2018, he studied Civil Engineering at the Aristotle University Of Thessaloniki. Then, he joined the Physics department at the University of Crete and in 2022 obtained his BSc in Physics with high distinction. He is currently a MSc student under the supervision of Prof. V. Pavlidou and Prof. N. Kylafis.

Career :

During his undergraduate studies he completed his senior thesis entitled "Relativistic QED versus classical magnetic resonant cross-sections" under the supervision of Prof. N. Kylafis and Prof. J. Truemper (MPE). Since 2019, he is a member of the Institute of Astrophysics currently working with Prof. N. Kylafis on a project related to cyclotron line formation in a radiative shock. In parallel, he studies the properties of various dark matter models, as well as their impact on structure formation and strong gravitational lensing under the supervision of Prof. V. Pavlidou, Prof. K. Tassis, and Dr. C. Casadio. Moreover, he is involved in the SMILE project focusing on theoretical calculations of the lensing probabilities.  In 2021, he was awarded a fellowship from the IA/FORTH and in 2022, he received the "ELISABETH KARAMINTZOU" award for his academic excellence.

Interests :

Cosmology, Dark matter, strong gravitational lensing, Theoretical Astrophysics with special interests in Production and Transfer of Radiation
