Post-Doc Researcher

PhD: Plant Ecophysiology and modelling

BSc: Environmental and Natural Resources Management

Short CV

Nikos Markos has graduated from the Department of Environmental and Natural Resources Management, University of Ioannina, Greece. He performed his PhD thesis (Development of a photosynthesis model for the estimation of Mediterranean ecosystems productivity) at the Laboratory of Botany, Department of Biological Applications and Technologies, University of Ioannina, Greece. As a PhD student, he participated in two research projects concerning ecosystem dynamics and remote sensing.

Today he works at the University of Ioannina as a Post-doc researcher in the framework of the project "Development of a satellite monitoring system for the estimation of primary productivity of the forests of Northern Pindus National Park in a GIS environment", coordinated by Aris Kyparissis.
