Research Interests:

I am a researcher mainly focusing on tectonic geomorphology. I am interested how mountains grow on different time-scales and how the development of topography relates and responds to other parameters such as earthquake hazard, climate and biodiversity. 

My research interests are very broad and current projects range from earthquake risks in Greece to landscape evolution and biodiversity of Colombia. Therefore, I use a multi-disciplinary approach comprising various analytical and numerical techniques combined with field surveys.
