    Ourania Tzoraki
    Title:Associate Professor
    Affiliation:Integrated River and Coastal Zone Management
    Office hours:12:00 -15:00, Thursday
    Curriculum vitae:cv


    Her research interests include

    - Hydrology, water quality and sediment transport monitoring, modelling and management of Intermittent and Ephemeral Streams (IRES), i.e. flash floods, nutrient pollution and Climate Change impact

    - Operational hydrology, i.e. early flood warning system development for IRES, Flow Image Velocimetry using UAVs

    - Artificial Aquifer Recharge with treated wastewater

    - Coastal Zone Management (coastal aquifers protection, beaches resilience, marinas and ports environmental management)

    - Scholars mentoring (ie refugee researchers)


    Αt the undergraduate level she teaches the modules Integrated Coastal Zone Management, Hydrology and Environmental Impact Assessement: Theory and Practice.

    At the M.Sc. "Management of Coastal Areas" she teaches Coastal Geohazards and Coastal Resources management.
