Prof. J. Sciare is the new director of the Energy Environment and Water Research Center (EEWRC) of the Cyprus Institute. His main expertise covers the experimental characterization of atmospheric aerosols; addressing issues related their impacts on air quality, health and climate. He has received a Ph-D in atmospheric chemistry and physics from Paris VII University in 2000 with a dissertation on the “Biogeochemical cycle of dimethylsulfide in the Austral Ocean”.
After a post-doctoral position at the Max Planck of Chemistry in Mainz (Germany) (Biogeochemistry group of Prof. M.O. Andreae) in 2000-2001, he has obtained a full permanent position in CNRS end of 2001 at LSCE and became CNRS Research director in 2013, leading the Atmospheric chemistry group at LSCE (25 persons) from mid-2012 to mid-2014. He has settled the first EU calibration center for on-line aerosol chemical instruments and has developed a reference laboratory in analytical chemistry for air quality programs on aerosols. Since mid-2014, J. Sciare is working at the Cyprus Institute.
He is currently setting up the first long term observations of key atmospheric pollutants in Cyprus and leading the development of an unparalleled fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles dedicated to atmospheric research studies. J. Sciare is (co-)author of about 100 international refereed publications (H-index 30) and more than 150 presentations at international conferences devoted to atmospheric chemistry and physics.
