Short CV: 

Stavros received his Diploma in Applied Physics from the School of Applied Mathematics and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), where he had the opportunity to specialize in Statistics and Mathematics for Computer Science. He holds a PhD in Earth Sciences & Environmental Engineering from the French Ecole Polytechnique (X) in Paris, and a Master’s Degree in Meteorology, Atmospheric Physics and Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere (OACOS) from the University of Pierre and Marie Curie (UPMC, Paris VI, France).

For his PhD, he worked at the Laboratoire de Météorologie Dynamique (LMD) where he participated in various research programs most notably on the following topics:

  • Atmospheric composition and air-quality modeling
  • Coupling of numerical modeling and remote-sensing observations
  • Environmental impact assessments of air pollutant emissions and transport

His dissertation was titled “Relative impact of mineral & forest-fires aerosols in the air-quality of the Euro-Mediterranean”.

Stavros joined ENVISA in March 2014. At ENVISA, he has been mainly involved in the development of EUROCONTROL’s Open-ALAQS, an emissions inventory tool for airports. Moreover, he provides technical support to several other research projects, which are initiated by the European Commission, EUROCONTROL and/or EASA with the objective of reducing the environmental impact of aviation.
