Paraskevi (Evi) Nomikou is a marine geologist who studies the morphology of underwater volcanoes and faults with extensive experience in marine volcanic and seafloor extruding processes. She is an Associate Professor at the Dep. of Geology and Geoenvironment of National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (Greece). She has participated in many oceanographic cruises that focused on submarine volcanism, fault zones, landslides and
slope stability and the exploration of seafloor mineral deposits.
More recently, she has played a leading role in the evaluation of the potential hazards associated with renewed volcanic activity at Santorini volcano in Greece. Her studies on underwater volcano areas where new earthquakes and deformations have been taking place are critical to the ongoing evaluation of future eruption scenarios. She has also been involved in the study of economically important seafloor mineral deposits within the crater of the submarine volcano Kolumbo, off the coast of Santorini. In 2013 and 2018 she was involved in expeditions to the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, mapping the sea floor of ocean core complexes and in 2015 in the Azores Platea, mapping the offshore volcanoes and in 2018 she was also participated in a NASA project onboard R/V Falkor in Costa Rica coastal zone. She effectively transfers her enthusiasm for sea floor exploration using innovative marine
technologies to younger students through her educational lectures at the university creating a high profile role model for young women thinking of pursuing careers in oceanography.
