Drakaki Eleni was born on 1985 in Athens. She received her B.Sc. in Physics and her M.Sc. in Environmental Physics/Meteorology from the University of Athens in 2010 and 2014 respectively. During 2015-2017 she worked as research associate at the Atmospheric Modeling and Weather Forecasting Group at the University of Athens. Currently, she is a PhD candidate at the Harokopio University and she is working together with the Insitute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications & Remote Sensing in the framework of her thesis, aiming to study the desert dust transport processes in the atmosphere, particularly focusing on super-coarse dust particles, and their implications on clouds using multiscale modeling tools. She is an ingenious and determined environmental physicist with over 6 years of experience. Effective in converting data into meaningful insights. Seeks to use first-class theoretical and code development skills to push forward the desert dust modeling.
Her research interest is atmospheric modeling, desert dust emission and transport processes, aerosol interactions and cloud processes.
