BSc: Biological Applications and Technologies
Theofilos Vanikiotis graduated from the department of Biological Applications and Technologies of the University of Ioannina. He performed his dissertation entitled "A study of phonological parameters of an Acer platanoides ecosystem using the MODIS satellite sensor and their correlation with climatic parameters" in the Laboratory of Botany under the supervision of Dr. Aris Kyparissis. In 2012 he was accepted as a PhD student and his PhD thesis is entitled "Utilization of advanced remote sensing techniques to study dynamic vegetation parameters". In the same time he is working as an assistant researcher at 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 Dr. Aris Kyparissis.
