Education: Rodanthi-Elisavet Mamouri is Physicist holding M.Sc. in Environmental Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) and PhD in Atmospheric Physics and Laser Application specializing in Atmospheric Remote Sensing from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece.
Professional background: Dr RE Mamouri is a Research Scientist (Senior Researcher B) at the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics, Remote Sensing and Geo-Environment Lab (ERATOSTHENES Research Centre) and responsible for the Atmospheric Remote Sensing Station of the DCEG in the CUT. She joined the Laboratory of Laser Applications of NTUA, as a research assistant in 2005. During the period 2009-2011 she was as Post-Doctoral researcher at the Institute for Space Applications and Remote Sensing (ISARS) of National Observatory of Athens (NOA) and the Laboratory of Laser Remote Sensing of the Atmosphere at the Physics Department of NTUA. In parallel to her research activities, since 2007 she is involved at the Curriculum of Universities and Technical Institutes (BSc½MSc) giving lectures and teaching independently in the field of Physics, Environmental Studies and Remote Sensing Techniques.
Research: RE Mamouri has long experience in research projects (>30) of National and European level (RPF, FP7, H2020) related to remote sensing applications, to satellite CAL/VAL activities, air pollution monitoring, aerosol-cloud interaction and atmospheric dynamics, extreme atmospheric events, dust storms, natural disasters, air pollution in urban and build environment. As a member of the European Aerosol Research Lidar Network (EARLINET) and European Research Infrastructure for the observation of Aerosol, Clouds, and Trace gases (ACTRIS), she has strong collaboration with international leading Institutes such as TROPOS and NOA, participating in common international field campaigns (e.g. CyCARE, SALTRACE, BACCHUS, CHARMEX, A-LIFE, ACTRIS COVID-19), and writing numerous of scientific articles and proposals to attract EU and National funds. She is project manager and key researcher in R&D projects contacting research, using active and passive remote sensing techniques both from ground-based sites and satellite sensors. Her main scientific interest is on the field of the study of mineral dust properties, its climatic role and its impact on cloud and precipitation formation and solar radiation. Currently, she is the responsible scientist at CUT for the operation of the PollyXT_CYP lidar system, installed in Limassol in October 2020. For her scientific work titled “New ways of using polarization lidars: fine and coarse-particle separation and cloud-based aerosol analysis”, she was awarded the Inaba Prize, an international recognition in the field of Atmospheric Remote Sensing by the Working Group of the International Coordination Group for Laser Atmospheric Studies (ICLAS). She participates in the organization of international scientific conferences and she is reviewer in numerous scientific articles. She has 49 publications at pre-reviewed open access scientific journals (web of science: h-index=27, citations 1681) and more than 100 oral/poster presentations at international conferences.
