Education: Dr. Rodanthi-Elisavet Mamouri is Physicist holding M.Sc. in Environmental Physics and PhD 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 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 in the field of Physics, Environmental Studies and Remote Sensing Techniques.
Research: RE Mamouri has long experience in research projects (>25) 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), and writing numerous of scientific articles and proposals to attract EU and National funds. She is 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 working on the development of new remote sensing-based methodologies and models using multiplatform datasets for the retrieval of aerosol-cloud related parameters and their impact in climate. For her recent 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 has 41 publications at scientific journals (h-index=18, citations 971) and more than 90 oral/poster presentations at international conferences.
