Position: Technical Scientist Under Contract
Dr. Anastasia Tsiola is a Biologist (University of Crete) with a Master degree in Oceanography (University of Southampton, National Oceanography Centre, UK). Her PhD thesis focused on alterations of viral and bacterial community composition and production rates upon anthropogenic pressure. She has studied the responses of microbial plankton to exposure to nanoparticles, dust and reduced pH/increased temperature (i.e. climate change) during mesocosm experiments, as well as to exposure to pollutants in the coastal zone during field expeditions. She is experienced in traditional marine microbial ecology tools (microscopy, flow cytometry, image analysis, radioactive and non-radioactive based estimation of viral and bacterial production rates) and molecular tools (next generation sequencing). She has been involved in national and EU funded projects (LIFE+, FP7, Marie Curie, ASSEMBLE). At the moment, she is a Post Doc researcher at the Institute of Oceanography (Hellenic Center for Marine Research), working on aquaculture environmental and sustainability.
