About

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 (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 this appointment I was a Research Fellow at the University of Bologna in Italy and have served as an Adjunct Lecturer in the Dpt. of Marine Sciences at the University of the Aegean. My research interests focus on coastal and ocean engineering, including a particular interest in the dynamics of coupled watershed-coast systems.
