Summary

Grigorios Vasilopoulos is a Lecturer in Geospatial and Earth Observation. His research interests are centred on understanding Earth surface processes and morphodynamics.

Greg’s research work is focused on the evolution and resilience of rivers, deltas and estuaries under anthropogenic and climatic impacts. He gained a BSc in Geology from the University of Athens in 2011 and an MSc in GIS & RS for Environmental Modelling and Management from the universities of Twente and Southampton in 2013. He then went on to complete a PhD in Physical Geography at the University of Southampton on the development of novel methods to quantify vegetative roughness.

Greg contributes to teaching on modules for DAIMs MSc in AI and Data Science programme. He is also supervising student dissertations for this course.
