research interests focus on the study of atmospheric chemistry
and climate change using global and regional models.
The chemical models have a detailed description of physics
and chemical reactions and their results are used to understand
the mechamisms involved in the transport and chemical transformation
of pollutants. The main interests include the study of the
origins and transport of pollution in the Eastern Mediterranean
region using data from ground measurements or aircraft campaigns.
In the field of climate change we use and process data from
global climate models in order to obtain a better estimate
of the future climate of the earth. The main focus is the
study of change of extreme events due to anthropogenic impacts
both regionally in Greece and in Europe. Moreover the impacts
of climatic changes on several sectors are also examined.
These sectors include forest fire risk, energy usage, population
health and tourism.
These two fields of interest complement each other since for
the study of climatic changes, several greenhouse gas scenarios
are used, whose composition arises from a detailed study of
the chemistry of atmosphere.
