Date of start of studies 1 July 2014
Supervisors Dr Nick Evans

Dimitrios Kosmidis is a PhD student working on "Radium migration through the surface environment at Three UK Natural Analogue Sites"part of the Lo-RISE project and working under the supervision of Dr Nick Evans (Senior Lecturer). Dimitrios graduated from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2008, with a Bachelor of Science in Geology, then gained an MSc in Sustainable Management in Aquatic Environment from the University of Thessaly in 2012.During his BSc and MSc studies he worked on both aquatic and land resources with an emphasis on their sustainability and quality, using a combination of extended fieldwork, monitoring and geochemical analyses. These experiences were written up in his research theses:

- Hydro-chemical and Geophysical research of the water aquifer in Almyros region, East Central Greece.

- Distribution of main and major ions, nitrogen and phosphorus in the sediments of Lake Karla, Central Greece.

  • Defining biogeochemical baselines
  • Soil and sediment transport properties
  • Molecular scale characterisation of NOM-radionuclide interactions.
