Course lecturers


* Dr. Evangelia Ioannidou


I obtained a master’s degree from the University of Reading, UK, and worked for a few years as a severe weather forecaster in the Hellenic National Hail Suppression Program conducted by the Hellenic Agricultural Insurance Organization. Then, I obtained a PhD from the University of Reading in the field of mesoscale meteorology and held a number of research contacts in European universities in a range of topics. These include convective parametrization (University of Reading), the ocean circulation (Imperial College) and mesoscale dynamics (Université de Toulouse). After immigrating to Canada I worked as a Research Associate in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences, McGill University, on the subject of anticyclonic weather systems. Later I worked with Environment Canada’s Wind Energy Group on wind energy forecasting. In the course of my research contracts I taught laboratory courses and guided undergraduate projects. Since 2013 I have been teaching here in the AOS department the course of Thermodynamics and Convection.

Naturally I am interested in weather and, in view of our changing times, in extreme weather and mitigation possibilities that societies could adopt. More broadly, I am interested in the role of scientists, specifically atmospheric scientists, in a progressively more automated, media-dominated world.
