Angelos Vourlidas' research interests extend over almost all aspects of solar activity from the chromosphere to the corona to the inner heliosphere. He is particularly interested in explosive activity, such as Coronal Mass Ejections and flares, and the origins of the solar wind. He has extensive experience in space hardware design, development, calibration and project management with emphasis on coronagraphs, and heliospheric, UV, and EUV imagers. He is an expert on ground-based radio interferometry and solar radio telescope calibration.   
He is Co-Investigator and Project Scientist on the following coronagraphic and heliospheric imaging payloads: LASCO (onboard ESA/NASA SoHO), SECCHI (onboard NASA STEREO), SoloHI (onboard ESA/NASA Solar Orbiter) and, WISPR (onboard NASA SPP). He is Co-I of the ESA ASPIICS coronagraph onboard the upcoming Proba-3 mission.
He was the Principal Investigator of the Very high Angular Resolution Ultraviolet Telescope (VAULT2.0) sounding rocket experiment and the Project Scientist (and Co-I) of the original VAULT and VERIS sounding rocket payloads with a combined experience of five rocket launch campaigns.
As of October 2018, Dr. Vourlidas has an h-index of 52 (per Web of Science). His 228 articles in peer-reviewed journals have been cited over 9000 times. For an up-to-date publication list please consult his Google Scholar profile
