Ioanna completed her undergraduate studies in Civil Engineering at the University of Patras, Greece, with emphasis on Hydraulic and Geotechnical Engineering. Her thesis was entitled “Software Development for the Simulation of Open Channel Fluid Flow” and involved coding a software on MatLab which calculates the free surface profile of an open channel flow, evaluates the flow depth in every position along the channel and returns a graphic image of the fluctuations. From March 2015 to August 2015, Ioanna participated in an internship at “Sigma Research Inc.”, working mainly on hydraulic and environmental studies. For 3 months, starting April 2016, Ioanna has been a visiting researcher at the University of Sheffield, in the framework of Erasmus+ Traineeship program, funded by the European Union.
