Short CV

  • BSc in Environmental and Natural Resources Management, University of Ioannina, Greece, “A comparative study of lakes in Estonia based on their zooplankton communities” (2005),
  • MSc in Department of Geography, University College London, London, United Kingdom, “Population and trophic ecology of the Bullhead (Cottus gobio) in a chalk stream ecosystem” (2006)

Dr Georgia Papantoniou is a marine ecologist. Her principal research interests lie on the impacts of stressors (climate change, acidification, eutrophication, habitat alteration, overfishing) on the structure and functioning of aquatic ecosystems. Currently, she is exploring the links between form and function in multispecies systems via ecological modelling using “Ecopath with Ecosim (EwE)”. She further aspires to assess the cumulative impact of preexisting and unprecedented natural and anthropogenic pressures on the functioning and resilience of coastal and marine Mediterranean ecosystems.

She has attended 9 national and international research projects.She is the author/co-author of 10 papers in peer-reviewed international scientific journals and has presented results in 12 conferences. She has participated in a training course in modelling aquatic ecosystems with EwE.
