Dr. Stavros Stagakis is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the Atmospheric Sciences group of the Department of Environmental Sciences in the University of Basel and a Research Associate at the Remote Sensing Lab, FORTH. He is the PI of the project diFUME: Urban carbon dioxide Flux Monitoring using Eddy Covariance and Earth Observation, funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowships programme (H2020-MSCA-IF-2018). He holds a BSc in Biological Applications and Technology and PhD in Plant Ecophysiology and Remote Sensing. His expertise is on remote sensing applications in biosphere monitoring and modelling. His latest research is focused on urban environment and urban climate, working extensively with Eddy Covariance measurements of turbulent CO2 fluxes and the combination of meteorological in-situ measurements with remote sensing imagery for spatially disaggregated modelling and monitoring of biogenic and anthropogenic CO2 fluxes.
