Born in Ioannina, Greece, in 1981. Studied Environmental Engineering at the Environmental Engineering Dept. of the Polytechnic School of the Democretus Univ. of Thrace and received her degree in 2004. Obtained her Ph.D. at the field of Remote Sensing at the Dept. of Earth and Environmental Sciences of the Graduate School and University Center, The City University of New York in 2011. The title of her Ph.D. Thesis is “Development and assessment of a neural network approach for retrieving aerosol properties from multispectral, multiangle polarization measurements”. Employed at the National Observatory of Athens since 2011.


Research Interests:
Aerosol characterization using passive and active remote sensing techniques with focus on polarimetric data.
Neural network and other inversion techniques applications on remote sensing data.

Selected Publications:
