Short CV

  • B.Sc in Natural Resources engineering, IA University, Tehran, Iran (2003)
  • M.Sc in Fishery and Marine biology- IA University, Tehran, Iran (2009)
  • PhD in Multidisciplinary Oceanography and Marine Environmental Management-National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Athens, Greece (2017)
  • M.Sc in sustainable blue growth-University of Trieste and OGS (Istituto Nazionale di Oceanografiae di GeofisicaSperimental),Triste, Italy (2019)

Leila Bordbar has gained her B.Sc in natural resources engineering and her first M.Sc in fishery and marine biology in Tehran-Iran. She rewarded a scholarship from ministry of education in Greece for her PhD and received her doctoral certificate with excellency from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece in 2017. In February 2019 she achieved her second master in sustainable blue growth from Trieste university in Italy.  Despite of her solid experience in fishery, she switched to marine pollution and therefore in her master thesis she worked on the toxicity of oil and dispersant and the hormonal disruption in marine organism. She continued her passion in environmental assessment and toxicology in her PhD and assessed the dumping area of the largest ferronickel smelting plant in Greece for 4 years. For her PhD not only, she assessed water, sediment and variety of marine organisms from the dumping area but also performed the oxidative biomarkers on aquaculture fish and mollusks samples from the area. She was involved in many national and international projects including the assessment of marine environmental in military shooting area in Peloponnese, the sinking area of wrenched ship in Santorini, the effect of aluminum factory and its thermo by product water in benthic organisms, the effect of using copper cage in sea beam aquaculture on the muscle of fish, the diet composition of Plesionika shrimps from Aegean Sea and many others. Currently as a Post Doc researcher she is mostly evaluating the safety of those commercial marine species including fish and crustaceans concerns for human consumption regarding both heavy metals and PCBs contaminations. Recently she is investigating on the total mercury concentrations in the marine food web and the plastic pollution in the deep-sea shrimps. Besides, all above, she is starting a new project on the interactive effects of climate change and ocean acidification on metallothionein function on the mature specimen of purple sea urchin in the east Mediterranean Sea.
