As of February 2016, Eirini has been part of MaREI’s Earth Observation and GIS applications team, where she is currently based on two international research projects.

Current Activities

Eirini is currently working on:

The European Commission H2020 Co-ReSyF project (Grant Agreement No. 687289) – Coastal Waters Research Synergy Framework,

The project is developing a framework that is a research and education resource enabling EO and non-EO experts, and coastal researchers to explore and realise the potential of Earth Observation data in coastal and marine water research.

The ESA C-TEP project – Coastal Thematic Exploitation Platform,

The project is developing an online platform for EO data access, processing and analysis, providing operational services to the coastal and marine community.


Eirini holds a BSc in Marine Sciences (University of the Aegean, Greece), MSc in Remote Sensing, Image Processing and Applications (University of Dundee, UK) and PhD in Limnology and Remote Sensing (University of Dundee, UK).
She is an aquatic remote sensing scientist with interest in global environmental change and the sustainable management of aquatic ecosystems (inland and marine). She has worked in marine, coastal and lake water remote sensing applications, as well as studies of land-water interactions.

Previous involvement in projects include:

  • Coastal zone management

ERDF INTERREG ΙΙΙΑ Greece-Cyprus Project (K.2301.001) – A Study of the Impacts of Human Activities in the Quality of the Coastal Environment and Selection of Environmental Quality Indices in the frame of Coastal Zone Management, according to the Directive 2000/60/EC

  • Lagoon management
