General Information

I was born at Thessaloniki, Greece in 19/04/1978 and studied Civil Engineering in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh; 2002). I acquired my Master in Environmental Engineering from Technical University of Crete in 2004 and obtained my Phd in Physical Oceanography from the Laboratory of Maritime Engineering & Maritime Works (AUTh) in 2011. I teach classes related to Physical and Dynamical Oceanography (AUTh and Univeristy of the Aegean). My research experience is focused on the fields of physical oceanography, hydrodynamic circulation modeling, coastal dynamics modeling (coastal zone erosion), storm surge modeling, climate modeling of sea state, marine pollution, oil spills, eutrophication, field observations, Lagrangian field and numerical experiments and management of the coastal environment. I have participated in several missions at different coastal and open-sea regions. I have published more than 100 papers in peer-reviewed journals (34; 1st author in 16 and 2nd author in 8) and international and national conferences. I have over 15 years' experience in field measurements of physical (properties, currents, drifters etc) and biochemical oceanography by participating in the design and execution of several missions at different coastal and open-sea regions (e.g., Thermaikos Gulf, North Aegean Sea, Gulf of Mexico, etc.). I have participated in more than 25 research projects under both national (Greek) and international (European and US) consortiums.
