Vangelis is not only exceptional in his abilities and drive to produce top-quality research, but also his keen spirit to learn and true passion for the academic profession. It is truly inspirational for me to have observed up close how he always pushes the limit and brings himself to the next level – for instance, achieving his goal to publish in top north American journals in a short amount of time of 3 years. At such young age, he has achieved so much and yet remains a personable, sincere, and kind individual which makes him a great mentor as well as colleague.
