PhD Agricultural University of Athens, lab. of Geology, “Tectonic analysis of central and northern Greece using Remote Sensing”, 1994

Research Interests

-Main objective of research interest constitutes the use of Space Earth Observation Systems.Specifically, synthetic aperture radar interferometry and very high spatial resolution remotely sensing data for natural disaster assessment, mitigation and monitoring.
-Use of very high resolution optical and radar data in geoarchaeology.
