Welcome to my personal website
My name is Achilleas Samaras. I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1982. I have a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki*¹ (AUTh), and I am currently a Civil Engineer at EYATH S.A., co-founder of THALASSA Coastal Engineering Modelling, and Research Associate in the Dpt. of Civil Engineering at AUTh.
Prior to my current appointments, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Bologna in Italy*² and have served as an Adjunct Lecturer in the Dpt. of Marine Sciences at the University of the Aegean*³. My research interests focus on coastal and ocean engineering, including a particular interest in the dynamics of coupled watershed-coast systems.
I am an elected member of the Board of Directors of the Onassis Foundation Scholars' Association, while I'm also actively involved in the Pint of Science Greece festival, as Coordinator for the City of Thessaloniki.
