Dr. Konstadia Lika
Assistant Professor at the Department of the University of Crete (UoC)
Konstadia has studied Mathematics at the University of Crete (1983-1987) and received her M.Sc. in Mathematics (1992) and her Ph.D. in Mathematical Ecology (1996) from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. She continued her post-doctoral studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. The general area of her research is mathematical modeling of biological systems.Her research expertise concerns the development of mathematical modelsto investigate the effects of environmental changes, toxicants and other stressors on individual life-history traits and on population dynamics. She has experience in developing methodologies for parameter estimations and data analysis. She has published 29 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals and up to date she is the head of the Mathematical Biology Laboratory.
Her role in the framework of HYPOXIA project is to develop and validate of an integrated pelagic-benthic model with the aim to investigate the conditions under which hypoxia can be occurred.
