Welcome to Geographical Affairs!
Hi! My name is Maria Chara Karypidou and I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Meteorology and Climatology, at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, since November 2022.
I am fascinated by the world of climate dynamics, especially over the southern Hemisphere and I am also interested on how climate affects human health and especially vector-borne diseases.
I believe that science should be a testament to the beautiful dance between chaos and complexity in nature and at the same time, be a life-long commitment of genuine service to society, and primarily to the disadvantaged, so that eventually "the whole Jericho road will be transformed".
Through Geographical Affairs I wish to communicate with you things I learn and find interesting along the way. I hope you enjoy it!
