His research interests include climate change, physical oceanography, ecological models, invasive species and microplastic pollution. Nikos is fluent in Greek, English, and Spanish.
As a person, I enjoy visiting monasteries, taking road trips, playing tennis and collecting antique cameras.
What about MEDASSET
MEDASSET is an excellent opportunity for me to give back to the community through the implementation of environmental projects and awareness campaigns. I left academia and joined MEDASSET in order to propose, manage and accomplish initiatives for a sustainable future and a chance for future generations to admire the marine environment, as I did, during my childhood in a Greek island.
