Frederick University (FU)

Dr Christina Oikonomou
Dr Christina Oikonomou graduated the Faculty of Physics, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in 2003, obtained her MSc in Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics in 2005 and her PhD in 2009 from the same university. From November 2012 to November 2016, she continued her research joining the Ionospheric Research Group (IRG) of Frederick University in Cyprus. By exploiting her knowledge in atmospheric physics and experience in application of statistical methods she focused on the atmosphere-ionosphere coupling processes. In particular, she studied thoroughly Sporadic E layer which is a prominent phenomenon in the ionosphere over Cyprus in respect to its formation based on the windshear theory and its tidal variabilities and characteristics. In addition, taking under consideration the lithosphere-atmosphere-ionosphere coupling (LAIC) model, she examined a significant number of earthquakes in South Eastern Europe to identify possible pre-earthquake ionospheric disturbances induced by imminent earthquakes. Her research activities in IRG of FU also include ionospheric ionosonde studies and modelling and regional ionospheric mapping with emphasis on Eastern Mediterranean area. Within this research framework she has acquired large experience in GNSS (Global Navigation Satellite Systems) atmospheric and ionospheric data analysis and manipulation using sophisticated algorithms, software and methods.
