My main research interests lie in the field of modelling fine sediment transport in coastal/shelf areas, sediment-hydro dynamics’ interactions and coastal circulation. In the framework of my doctoral thesis I studied the physical processes that control the fate of fine sediments in the marine environment, processes that were included in a comprehensive mathematical model. After successfully completing my PhD, I received a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation in the context of extending the modelling framework of my thesis towards the formulation of a coupled circulation-sediment transport model. I also had the opportunity of working as a postdoctoral researcher in IFREMER regarding the coupling of sediment dynamics’ and ecosystem models to investigate the impacts of extreme hydro-meteorological conditions on the sea-grass dynamics of the Arcachon Basin, in France. Recently, I have also participated in scientific projects related with storm surge variability under climate change conditions and coastal circulation prognosis.
As of September 2016, I am a postdoctoral researcher at CIMA, working on the project ‘EVREST - Evolution and Resilience of barrier island systems’.
