My research activities are related to the study of dynamics of coastal marine ecosystems emphasizing on (a) phytoplankton ecology and diversity, (b) water quality assessment, (c) integrated coastal zone management, using numerical simulations and statistical methods. This research results to (a) publications in peer-reviewed journals and announcements in scientific conferences, (b) supervision of PhD, MSc theses and dissertations, (c) participation in research projects and (d) scientific collaborations in national and international levels. The recognition of my work (Web of Knowledge, October 2013) is summarized into 309 citations (excluding self-citations), average of 11.09 citations per article and h-index of 12.


At the undergraduate level, I offer mandatory courses on 'Introduction to Informatics and Programming', 'Simulation Methods and Applications' and lectures in 'Marine Biodiversity', as well as the optional course on 'Numerical Analysis'. At the postgraduate level, I direct the Francohellenic M.Sc. Program 'Biodiversity Conservation'-BIODIV, a collaboration of the Universities of the Aegean and Montpellier 2. In BIODIV, I coordinate and offer lectures on 'Modelling'. Finally I coordinate and offer lectures on statistics in the course 'Applications of Quantitative Methods in the Coastal Zone' of the M.Sc. Program on 'Coastal Zone Management' that is coordinated by the Department of Marine Sciences.
