Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering | Expertise: predictability of extreme weather events, anthropogenic activities on climate, numerical modeling of atmospheric processes (weather and air quality)
Dr. Astitha has earned a B.Sc. in Physics and a M.Sc. and Ph.D. in Environmental Physics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. She joined the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering in 2013. Dr. Astitha is leading the Atmospheric Modeling and Air Quality Group and conducts research on the predictability of extreme weather events and impacts in the power network, anthropogenic activities that alter the climate and uncertainties associated with numerical modeling of atmospheric processes (weather and air quality). Dr. Astitha has 12 years of experience in atmospheric and air quality modeling systems from regional to global scales. She serves at the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Air and Waste Management Association.
