Welcome to Geographical Affairs!
Hi! My name is Maria Chara Karypidou and I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Geography from the University of the Aegean, in Greece and a Master's Degree in "Meteorology, Climatology and Atmospheric Environment" from the Department of Meteorology and Climatology, at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. On March 2018 I set out for my PhD adventure, by investigating the climate dynamics over southern Africa, with a particular emphasis on their effect on regional-scale precipitation patterns. Since February 2020 I am a visiting PhD student at NORCE, Bjerknes Center for Climate Research in Bergen, Norway.
Through Geographical Affairs I wish to communicate with you things I learn and find interesting along the way. I hope you enjoy it!
