Christos Pennos: I completed my Ph.D. in Geology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) in 2014. The subject of my dissertation was the “Landscape evolution of Menikio Mountain (Macedonia, Greece) based on morphological and sedimentological analyses of caves”, including landscape geomorphic analysis and paleoclimatic reconstruction through speleothem records. In 2015, I received an 18 month long personal EU grant from the IKY-EEA funding scheme under the theme “Integrated Management of Sea and Inland Waters”. During this period, I worked on Maaras cave (Aggitis River springs) where, I created a 3d subsurface model, based on which I developed a speleogenetic conceptual model for its evolution in relation to the geomorphic development of the fluvial valley. Now you can find me in room 3152, 3RD floor, working as postdoctoral researcher on the FOPAK project where I will work closely with Professor S-E Lauritzen on karst/cave types/geometries, representing different tectonostratigraphic settings, in order to construct a suite of paleokarst reservoir models.
