    Curriculum vitae:cv


    Dr. Konstantinos Topouzelis is an assistant professor in the Department of Marine Sciences, University of the Aegean and he is leading the Marine Remote Sensing Group. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Environmental Studies (University of the Aegean, Department of Environment), a Master's degree in Remote Sensing (University of Dundee, Department of Applied Physics & Mechanical Engineering) and a Ph.D. in pollution monitoring from space (National Technical University of Athens, School of Rural and Surveying Engineering). .

    His main research interest is on the analysis of remote sensing datasets, including satellite and aerial images, for marine and coastal applications. His expertise includes automatic detection of oceanographic phenomena, Object Based Image Analysis, image processing algorithms and coastal mapping.


    Undergraduate level: Introduction to Marine Remote Sensing, Satellite Oceanography

    Postgraduate level: Geoinformatics with applications in coastal and marine environments

    Professional activities

    2016-today, Assistant Professor, Department of Marine Sciences, University of the Aegean

    2014-2016, Lecturer, Department of Marine Sciences, University of the Aegean

    Other activities

    He is an author of more than 30 several refereed papers in international scientific journals and books, member of editorial board of Mediterranean Marine Science Journal, referee in several scientific journals and principal investigator in international research projects. Prior to his academic career he worked for the European Commission Joint Research Centre, ISPRA, Italy and in Greek private sector.

    He lives in Lesvos island with his wife Elli and their two boys Nicolas and Dimitris. He is a qualified sailing skipper, but deep down he wishes he could have been a professional sailor.
