Nikos Chatzisarantis, Professor at Curtin University, Australia, was an internationally renowned researcher in the field of exercise and health psychology, Section Editor of the International Journal of Sport and Exercise Psychology. Unfortunately, Nikos passed away very recently, at a young age. Nikos grew up in Thessaloniki, Greece, graduated from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, and he received a Masters and a PhD degree from Exeter and Loughborough universities, respectively. He held academic positions in the UK, Singapore and Australia. He conducted research across many countries in collaboration with many international colleagues and research students. Nikos was an accomplished scholar, always opening new lines of research, using the most advanced research methodologies. Nikos was a great thinker, very intelligent and very well read, with great passion for research and many visionary ideas. He published in many top journals in psychology in the fields of sport and exercise, health, education, and social/personality, and he was widely cited. He was particularly liked by his PhD students and his friends/colleagues.
His brilliance and friendship will remain forever in our memories.
