I am a well- organized person who enjoys working as a part of a team and autonomously. I am able to communicate confidently with people at all levels, from senior scientists to my own immediate peers and technical staff. I have developed excellent written communication skills (writing reports) as a result of my work in Belgium. I can work comfortably in a multicultural environment, because of my former experience abroad. From Greece, I sharpened my ability to prioritize the tasks correctly and pay attention to detail. My team was small so everyone had more than one role. I make sure that the quality standards and the aims of the project are met. I know that deadlines are firm and strictly enforced to ensure proper functioning, so my time management skills would be an asset. I learned how to create a detailed work plan which identifies and prioritizes the activities needed to successfully complete the project. I have been working in different laboratories for five years (including my subject of dissertation) and I am familiar with the laboratory safety rules. I am a strong advocate of continuing education and intend to maintain professional development throughout my career, you can be assured that I will stay on top of emerging, critical environmental matters. I am committed to my work and have a passion for the environment. Subsequently, I demonstrated in-depth knowledge of environmental issues and problem-solving strategies through my work in upper-level class assignments and projects. My studies provided me the opportunity to study and analyze key concepts, principles, and practices in environmental engineering.
May 2014 --- December 2014
I worked as a project engineer and a laboratory researcher. I worked on several European programs and I conducted the experiments and I had to implement the required tasks. Also I conducted experiments on soil remediation, specifically about in situ remediation of VOCl and assisted in writing the reports. I performed tasks in order to ensure continuity of the lab work and quality checks on different samples in order to ensure that the quality of products is ensured.
Laboratory Researcher, project engineer
May 2010 --- May 2014
At first, I was a laboratory assistant, then I worked as a laboratory researcher and a project engineer. I organized the team of people which worked on the projects and I monitored them to ensure that the guidelines are maintained. I was involved in several projects and had many roles. I monitored the quality of storm water in several industrial regions in Greece and I evaluated the impact of the water pollution of heavy metals and transgression of nutrients. I carried out an analytical research project for the in situ aerobic treatment of sewage wastewater. I treated several agro-industrial wastewaters (wine lees, abattoir wastewater, cheese whey, brewing yeast, manure slurry) using different types of anaerobic reactors (UASB, CSTR, anaerobic contact reactors).
January 2013 --- September 2013
An in-situ anaerobic compact system for the treatment of wine lees was developed and constructed.
