Georgios Grivas graduated from the School of Chemical Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (CE- NTUA) with a Diploma thesis on the subject of “Particulate matter and air quality assessment in Athens”. He was awarded an engineer’s Doctoral Degree in Atmospheric Pollution Studies, from the Department of Chemical Sciences of CE-NTUA, with the Ph.D. thesis titled “Spatiotemporal variability and prediction models of particle concentrations in the atmosphere of Athens”. Has worked as research and teaching assistant at CE-NTUA for 15 years, specializing in the characterization of atmospheric aerosols in Athens. Has cooperated with the Laboratory of Hygiene, Epidemiology and Medical Statistics of the Medical School of Athens, on air pollution personal exposure assessment utilizing field measurements. Has worked at the National Center for the Environment and Sustainable Development. In 2016, he joined the Institute for Environmental Research & Sustainable Development of the National Observatory of Athens (IERSD/NOA), as a post-doctoral researcher, working on source apportionment for ambient particles. He has participated in 13 funded research projects and has co-authored more than 80 publications, including 38 journal articles cited over 1600 times (h-index: 17).

Research Interests: Chemometrics; multivariate statistical methods for spatial-temporal analysis of atmospheric data; physical-chemical atmospheric processes; source apportionment for ambient aerosols; statistical and artificial intelligence methods for pollution forecasting; sampling and monitoring of ambient pollutants; urban air quality; exposure and risk assessment.
