Eleni Marinou graduated from the Applied Physics at the Applied Sciences Department of the National Technical University of Athens in 2010. She received her M.Sc. in the field of “Environmental Physics” from the Physics Department of the Kapodistrian University of Athens (2013). She acquired her PhD diploma on the study of the vertical distribution of desert dust and condensation nuclei over the Mediterranean from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2017). She has been contacting research at the IAASARS Institute of the National Observatory of Athens since 2010, focusing on the retrieval of atmospheric parameters using passive and active remote sensing techniques.
Atmospheric aerosol and cloud properties and interactions. She has been working mostly on problems related to the properties of mineral dust, its climatic role and its impact on cloud formation, retrieving properties of aerosols (from active and passive remote sensing methods) and validation of space-borne atmospheric products using ground-based lidar and sunpho-tometric techniques
