Dr. Stelios Liodakis is a post-doctoral researcher at CUT’s Geospatial Analytics Lab. He holds a PhD from the Geography Department of the University of the Aegean, Greece, with specialization in geostatistical modelling of spatial uncertainty in an environmental/hydrogeological context. He received his BSc degree in Geology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, and his MSc degree in Geography and Applied Geoinformatics from the Geography Department of the University of the Aegean, Greece. Dr. Liodakis has co-taught undergraduate and postgraduate courses on geostatistical modeling, spatial analysis, and multivariate statistics at the University of the Aegean, the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Cyprus University of Technology.   

Dr. Liodakis’s research interests include the development and application of geostatistical and quantitative methods in geography and geoinformatics, with applications in GIS, remote sensing and environmental modeling. He has developed novel geostatistical methods for efficient uncertainty propagation in models with spatially distributed parameters, along with pertinent code using scripting languages (public domain and proprietary). During the first semester of his MSc studies he received a scholarship as the best performing student among his cohort. He also received a prestigious student scholarship from the journal “Mathematical Geosciences” for his work on “Advances in Geostatistics for Environmental Characterization and Natural Resources Management”. He has also worked in the private sector for 16 years and at the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) for 3 years, engaged mainly in GIS applications (Environmental Hazards Prevention, Urban Development Planning, National Cadastral and more), Data Science and Information Management.
