Welcome to my blog! My name is Georgios Boumis and since 2017 I’m a Civil Engineering graduate with a specialization in Geotechnical & Hydraulic Engineering from the University of Patras (UoP) in Greece. I’ve also graduated from the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) with an M.Sc. in Environmental Engineering (2021), 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 primary research interests are: a) Coastal Flood Risk, and b) Geostatistical Analysis. In general, my current research revolves around the development of statistical models for quantification of flood hazard near the coast. Aside research, I’m also interested in functional and probabilistic computer programming with the use of R and Stan, respectively. My hobbies include reading books, swimming, and playing board/card games, among others. In this blog, I mainly post stuff related to my academic and research background. Occasionally, I also post other things I may find interesting in my life. You can start reading my blog by clicking this link!
