Hello,

I'm Marios,

Well, this is me in the picture so... please don't wait much!


I hold a BSc in Geography from Harokopio university of Athens and a MSc in Geography and Applied Geoinformatics in Environmental and Risk Management from University of the Aegean. I am currently a PhD candidate in the field of Geographical Analysis and Geoinformation at the University of the Aegean and I also work as a junior Drupal developer at Pelagus Creative Web. I've participated in several research projects and authored and co-authored a number of papers and conference papers and presentations. My research and working interests focus on Web Design/Development, GIS/WebGIS, and RS as well.

EDUCATION

PhD in Geographical Analysis and Geoinformatics

2017 to date

The topic of my PhD is to study location-allocation spatial modeling in evacuation planning in case of difficult to predict/prevent disasters. The case study of my PhD is the city of Mytilini, Lesvos, Greece.

As a PhD candidate, I've been funded by the Erasmus+ International Placement Program to visit the School of Software at Tsinghua University in Beijing, China.
