EDUCATION & RESEARCH EXPERIENCE

Ph.D. (Highest Distinction) in Environmental Engineering   2011- 2016

Department of Environmental Engineering, DemocritusUniversity of Thrace.                     PhD Thesis: ‘‘Energy and GHG Fluxes in Urban and Rural Environments”

Doctoral Dissertation conducted with Prof. Spyridon Rapsomanikis.        

Design and implementation of pioneering experiments investigating greenhouse gas (GHG) and energy fluxes for Mediterranean sites subjected to extreme climate phenomena. Climate driven vulnerabilities were clarified, enhancing the existing theoretical basis for mitigation policies.

 

MSc. (Highest Distinction) in Hydraulic Engineering and Environment  2009-2010

Department of Civil Engineering, Democritus University of Thrace, GR. Application of genetic algorithms, stochastic and statistical analyses to optimize water resources systems.

 

MSc. (Distinction) in Structural Engineering  2008-2009

Department of Civil Engineering, University of Surrey, U.K.

Risk Management in projects related to Structural Design of Bridges and Buildings against earthquakes and fatigue processes due to environmental variability.

 

Civil Engineering Degree (5, 5 year course of studies), Distinction   2002-2008

Department of Civil Engineering, Democritus University of Thrace. Thesis: ‘‘Hydrological responses of Guadiana River’s basin using SWAT model’’, Supervisor Prof. N. Kotsovinos.

 

Research Assistant. Advisor: Prof. P. Angelidis  2008 Project: Development of drought indicators based on water balance equation at catchment scale      

 

UNIVERSITY TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Developed and directed seminars in postgraduate programs investigating diverse applications of turbulent exchange in the atmosphere for a wide variety of terrain characteristics and environments.
