Prof. Jean Sciare, Director of CARE-C, The Cyprus Institute
Prof. J. Sciare is the Director of the Climate and Atmosphere Research Centre (CARE-C) of the Cyprus Institute (CyI) and Grant Holder of the “EMME-CARE” H2020 Teaming project. 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 PhD in atmospheric chemistry and physics from Paris VII University in 2000 with a dissertation on the “Biogeochemical cycle of dimethylsulfide in the Austral Ocean”. Following a post-doctoral position at the Max Planck of Chemistry in Mainz (Germany) in 2000-2001 on the measurement of Cloud Condensation Nuclei (CCN) in various environments, J. Sciare has obtained a full permanent position in CNRS end of 2001 at LSCE and became CNRS Research Director in 2013, leading an atmospheric chemistry group of 20 persons from mid-2012 to mid-2014. Since mid-2014, J. Sciare is a full-time professor at the Cyprus Institute. J. Sciare is currently leading the development of several major CyI research infrastructure such as: 1) the Cyprus Atmospheric Observatory (CAO) for long term observations of key atmospheric pollutants in Cyprus at, 2) the Unmanned System Research Laboratory (USRL) for the development of an unparalleled fleet of unmanned aerial vehicles dedicated to atmospheric research studies, and 3) the Facility for Chemical Analyses (FCA) for the speciation of trace species in ambient gases and aerosols. J. Sciare is (co-)author of more than 150 international refereed publications (H-index 46) and more than 150 presentations at international conferences devoted to atmospheric chemistry and physics.
