Fields: Environmental Impacts of Aviation, Air Quality
Lab Role: Research Assistant
I come from Athens, Greece, and attended the University of Cambridge for my undergraduate studies (BA (Hons), MEng) in Aerospace and Aerothermal Engineering. My MEng research project was on aeroacoustics, analyzing the landing gear noise of a Boeing 747-400. I completed my Masters degree at MIT in May 2014, and I am now pursuing a PhD. My Masters thesis focused on investigating the temporal, spatial, and speciated air pollution impacts of the combustion emissions from the six major sectors in the US. My research broadly focuses on developing tools that help us assess the air quality and health impacts of emissions – those from aviation as well as other sectors.
