Dr. Athanasios G. Loukas is an Associate Professor of Hydrology and Water Resources in the Department of Rural and Surveying Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki from 2018 up today. Before 2018 was Director of the Laboratory of Hydrology and Aquatic Systems Analysis and Director of the common Greek-French Master Program “Management of Hydrometeorological Hazards-Hydrohasards” co-organized with the Joseph Fourier University-Grenoble I. He was awarded his Engineering Diploma in Rural and Surveying Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, a M.A.Sc. Degree in 1991, and a Ph.D. in Hydrology and Water Resources in 1994 from the University of British Columbia, Canada. He was awarded fellowships and scholarships from national and international organizations for his undergraduate and postgraduate academic achievements. He was Visiting Scientist (Professor 1st class) at the Joseph Fourier University-Grenoble I, France and Visiting Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Colorado State University, U.S.A. in 2013. He has been awarded a Fulbright Research Scholarship for the academic year 2013-2014. Dr. Loukas currently teaches courses on hydrology, stochastic hydrology, design of dams and reservoirs, modelling of water resources systems, risk analysis of water resources, floods, droughts, forecasting of hydrozards and he taught courses on geodesy and surveying, environmental impacts of climate change, water resources management and environmental protection, applications of GIS and remote sensing to water resources. He supervises or supervised Ph.D. Dissertations, Master Theses and Engineering Diploma Theses. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of EWRA European Water journal, Associate Editor of MDPI Water journal andEditorial Board Member of Scientific Review Engineering and Environmental Sciences. He was Associate Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Spatial Hydrology and Guest Editor of special issues of MDPI Water, EWRA European Water, EGU Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences and Hydrological Processes. He is regular reviewer of numerous international scientific journals and national and international conferences. He is reviewer of IPCC Special Report “Managing the Risks of Extreme Events and Disasters to Advance Climate Change Adaptation (SREX)” and “Abstract for Policymakers (SPM)”, and research proposals in the areas of Water Resources Management and Management of Natural Hazards, Directorate General XII, Science, Research and Development, as well as reviewer of research proposals in the areas of Environment and Water Resources for National Greek and Cyprian Calls. He was and he is Greek national representative in the COST programs, COST 719 – The Use of Geographic Information Systems in Climatology and Meteorology, COST ES0901 – European Procedures for Flood Frequency Analysis (FloodFreq), COST ES1106 - Assessment of EUROpean AGRIculture WATer use and trade under climate change (EURO-AGRIWAT). Dr. Loukas is a registered professional engineer in Greece and is a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece, Greek Union of Rural and Surveying Engineers, International Association of Hydrological Science (IAHS), European Geophysical Union (EGU), Greek Association of Water Resources Management (Elected officer 2005-today), European Water Resources Association (EWRA), Global Nest and other professional and scientific organizations. He participated in and co-ordinated national and international engineering projects. His research interests include: deterministic and stochastic hydrological modelling, hydrological modelling of ungauged and mountainous watersheds, analysis, modelling, and forecasting of extreme hydrological events (floods and droughts), climate change impacts on the hydrological processes and water resources, spatial and temporal analysis, estimation, and modelling of hydrometeorological data, water resources management and modelling, and applications of GIS and remote sensing in hydrology and water resources. He has co-ordinated and participated in national and European research projects. Dr. Loukas is the author and co-author of more than 250 referred international journal publications and conference proceedings publications and technical reports. His published work has received over 700 citations (690 independent citations), as indicated in Scopus database search with h-index=17 (h-index=17, L-index=40) and over 1300 citations, as indicated in Google Scholar database search (h-index =22, i-10=36)
