Short CV

  • BSc in Environmental Biology, School of Biology, University of Patras (2001-2005)
  • MSc in Ecology, Biodiversity and Environmental Management, School of Biology, University of Patras (2006-2008)
  • PhD Candidate in Environmental flows, Ecohydraulics – Hydrodynamic habitat modelling based on freshwater macroinvertebrates (2015-current)

Since 2013 he holds a position as a research assistant (benthic-invertebrates expert) in the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research. During 2006 he had held a position as a research assistant in the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research. During 2005-2008 he had held a position as a technical assistant in the School of Biology, University of Patras.

During 2006-2008 he had held a position as a research associate in the School of Biology, University of Patras.

He has research interests on (i) environmental flows, ecohydraulics, hydrodynamic habitat modelling, (ii) ecological quality monitoring and assessment of surface waters (iii) implementation of the Water Framework Directive 2000/60/EU, (iv) toxicity evaluation of wastewaters by the use of biological indices, (v) sampling and identification of benthic macroinvertebrates, (vi) fisheries quality assessment – food quality assessment, (vi) assessment of drinking water quality.

He has participated in 7 national and international projects. He has contributed 17 papers in peer-reviewed journals, as well as 7 other publications (conference proceedings).
