Aikaterini Radioti


Aikaterini Radioti studied physics at the University of Thessaloniki in Greece. She then defended her doctoral thesis in Germany, at the Max Planck Institue for Solar System Research. Her research concerned Jupiter’s magnetosphere, based on the data collected by the Galileo probe. In 2006, she joined the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Planetary Physics (LPAP), Department of Astrophysics, Geophysics and Oceanography (AGO) at the University of Liège. As an FRS-FNRS postdoctoral researcher, she focused on Jupiter’s aurorae. Thanks to an ESA PRODEX contract, she was able to go onto study Saturn’s aurorae, observed with the Cassini probe’s UVIS instrument.  

Aikaterini Radioti has already received numerous prizes for her research, in particular the Prix Baron Nicolet awarded by the Académie Royale de Belgique in 2010, the Arne Richter Award for Outstanding Young Scientists in 2012, awarded by the European Geosciences Union (EGU), and the Prix des Amis de l’ULg in 2014.
