Marinos Eliades received his BSc degree in Geology (2008) and his MSc degree in ecological quality and water management at a river basin level (2010) from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece). He obtained his PhD in Energy, Environment and Atmospheric Sciences from The Cyprus Institute, in 2018.
He worked as a research assistant in Hydrology at the Energy, Environment and Water Research Centre (EEWRC) of The Cyprus Institute, from 2012 to 2018. After receiving his PhD, he worked as a post-doctoral researcher in Hydrology at EEWRC, until July 2022. During his 10-year employment at The Cyprus Institute, he was involved in six European funded projects (FP7, H2020, PRIMA) related to water research. Through his research activities, he gained expertise in field sensor configuration and installation (meteorological stations, soil moisture, soil water potential and sap flow sensors), in in-situ measurements (porometer, pressure chamber, plant canopy analysis systems and stream flow measurements) and in laboratory analysis (soil texture, soil bulk density). His main research interest is on monitoring hydrological and environmental processes, mainly in agricultural and forested areas.
Marinos joined the Eratosthenes Centre of Excellence team as a researcher in Hydrology and Water Resources Management in August 2022.
Marinos has authored and co-authored 13 papers published in peer-review international journals. Some indicative publications are given below:
