Dr. Sotirios Sboras is a Geologist/Geoscientist, recently finished from a Post-doctoral fellowship at the Physics and Earth Sciences Department of the University of Ferrara (Italy) from where he received his Ph.D. in 2012 along with the Doctor Europaeus title. His PhD position was with scholarship after selection and his thesis was awarded as one of the best of the 24th PhD cycle. He also earned an M.Sc in 2005 and a B.Sc. in 2002 from the Department of Geology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece). His scientific interests include active tectonics, earthquake geology, tectonic geomorphology, GIS, geodynamics, crustal rheology, earthquake triggering modelling and structural geology.

In order to complete his military obligations, he served the Greek Air Force for 12 months (2005-2006) as a Meteorological Observer.

He possesses advanced knowledge and experience of GIS software, MS office suite, Corel Draw, Photoshop, Acrobat Professional and other software. Greek is mother tongue, but he has also great skills in English and basic knowledge in Italian.

Since 2003 he has participated in various research projects.

His publications include several peer-reviewed journal and conference articles and many abstracts (short & extended).
