    Recent sedimentation processes in coastal to deep water environments Marine geohazards (gas in sediments and pockmarks, submarine mass movements, faults, current-induced bedforms, diapirism etc) and their consequences in coastal and offshore works (submarine power and telecommunication cables, pipelines, ports etc). Coastal erosion and morphodynamics. Habitat mapping. Surveys/studies for marine aggregate resources. Seismic stratigraphy and sea-level changes during the Quaternary. Marine geotechnical properties and submarine slope stability. Marine geo-archaeological studies.


    Undergraduate level: (i) Geo-environment and Oceanography (1st semester), (ii) Marine Sedimentology (3rd semester), (iii) Applied Marine Geology (6th semester), (iv) Coastal and Marine Applications (8th semester), (v) Intership/Practical Exercise (6th semester). In most of the aforementioned courses I offer tutorials, laboratory exercises and field trips in coastal areas, also onboard the department’s R.S. "Amfitriti" for sediment sampling and study of different sedimentary environments.

    Postgraduate level: (i) Coastal Geohazards in MSc “Integrated Coastal Management” and (ii) Field methods, data analysis, and models in Marine Scineces in MSc “Research in Marine Sciences”.

    Professional activities

    As a member of the "Coastal Morphodynamics-Managment and Marine Geology Laboratory" and within my academic duties, I am involved in applied marine geophysical/geotechnical surveys/studies related to submarine power and telecommunication cables, gas and oil pipelines, ports, etc.

    Member in various associations/organizations.
