Hi – welcome to my blog! My name is Georgios Boumis and I’m a Civil Engineering graduate from the University of Patras, Greece. I’ve also graduated from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) with an M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering, specializing in Environmental Informatics. In the past, I have worked as an intern on aspects of real-time flood forecasting at Deltares, the Dutch national institute for applied research in the field of water and subsurface. As of Spring 2021, I’m doing my Ph.D. in Civil Engineering at the University of Alabama (UA) where I’m also working as a Graduate Research Assistant at the Center for Complex Hydrosystems Research (CCHR). My research interests are: a) Extreme seas, b) Coastal adaptation, and c) Disaster risk. Aside research, I’m also interested in computer programming with the use of R, and the geometry of statistics! My hobbies include reading books and trying out new tea flavors, among others. Lastly, I’m a big fan of trading card games.
