Short CV

  • BSc in Biology, Department of Biology, School of Natural Sciences, University of Patras, Greece (1999-2003)
  • MSc in Ecology, Management & Protection of the Natural Environment, Department of Biology, School of Natural Sciences, University of Patras, Greece (2003-2005)
  • PhD in the Department of Biology, School of Sciences and Engineering, University of Crete, Greece in collaboration with the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research (2007-2012)

Dr. Schismenou is a fisheries biologist. Her research has mainly focused on fish biology and ecology, small pelagic fish growth and reproduction, reproductive ecology and small pelagic fish spatial distribution and environmental interactions. She has attended special training courses in applied fish reproductive biology, otolith microstructure analysis of small pelagic fish larvae and juveniles.

She has acted as Principal Investigator in one project and she has participated in more than 10 national and international projects.

She has contributed 14 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 1 book chapter, as well as more than 30 other publications (i.e., conference proceedings, special publications, etc).
