Dimitris Paronis obtained his BSc in Physics from the University of Athens in 1991, a MSc in Electronics & Telecommunication from the same University in 1994 and his PhD in Remote Sensing from the University of the Aegean, Greece in 2008.
He worked in the laboratory of Remote Sensing of the Dept. of Environmental Studies (University of the Aegean) as a research associate (1994-1997) and from June 1997 to August 1998 in the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement (LSCE/CEA) in the framework of a Marie Curie-Training and Mobility of Researchers grant. After his military service (November 1998-May 2000), he worked as a research associate in the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications & Remote Sensing. In year 2001 he joined IAASARS as a member of the scientific staff of the institute.
