About

Dr. Giorgos Markou (GM) received his first degree (MSc equivalent) on Agricultural Engineering (Crop Science, Agricultural University of Athens-AUA) in 2003 and in 2010 received a second MSc degree on Energy Systems Management and Renewable Energy Sources (AUA) and since 2013 holds his PhD degree (AUA) on production of microalgal biomass for biofuels generation and wastewater treatment. Since 2013 he finished 3 post-doc projects (1) Department of Agricultural Engineering, HAO-Demeter, Greece (2014-2015) and (2) Pegasus Marie Curie, WFO KU Leuven, Belgium (2015-2016), (3) IKY-Siemens Scholarship grant for Excellence from Greek Scholarship Foundation (IKY), Greece (2016-2017). GM is the author of 37 peer reviewed articles (SCI system), 5 book chapters and over than 10 other publications (total references over than 1350; h index 15; Google Scholar). So far, he has participated in 6 delivered research projects and is involved in 3 ongoing ones. He has a broad research interest focusing on waste and wastewater valorization and nutrient (nitrogen, phosphorus etc.) recovery, biomass production (microalgae, cyanobacteria, higher plants), and biomass utilization (food, feed, biofuels, high-value products etc.). He is a member of the Management Committee of the Cost Action EUAlgae and member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the journal Algal Research (Elsevier, Impact Factor 4.6) and active reviewer in more than 25 journals and evaluator of funding research proposals.
