Dr Nikolas Martzikos
Research Fellow in ORE Metocean Data Integration
School of Biological and Marine Sciences (Faculty of Science and Engineering)
Nikolas is a Research Fellow in Offshore Renewable Energy Metocean Data Integration. He is working on High-Frequency Radars as part of the Cornwall Floating Offshore Wind (FLOW) Accelerator project.
Nikolas holds a BSc in Mathematics, an MSc in Marine Science and Technology from the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and he completed his PhD in Coastal Engineering in the School of Civil Engineering (NTUA). He worked as a research and teaching assistant at NTUA during his PhD and as a mathematics tutor for more than ten years in the private sector. His PhD, titled "Analysis of Coastal Storms for their Application in Harbours and Coastal Structures Design" was completed in the Laboratory of Harbour Works (NTUA). His doctoral research was based on wave datasets of 30 locations in the Mediterranean Sea including the data analysis, the descriptive statistics of storm activity, the study of associated parameters, and the use of copula functions for coastal storms’ simulation and the return periods.
He has been involved in the research project PEARL (Fp7) working on the case study of Rethymno - Crete, for climate change, the extreme and rare events. His PhD thesis was funded by the Greek State Scholarships Foundation. He also participates in the project “Storms2Coast”, a basic research project for probabilistic representation of coastal storms and their impacts on coastal structures which is funded by the NTUA.
His current role at the University of Plymouth started in December 2021.
