Mrs. Georgia Ntatsi
Institute of Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources, ELGO-DEMETER,Greece
Researcher in Vegetable Production at the Institute of Plant Breeding and Genetic Resources- ELGO-DEMETER. Dr. Ntatsi was awarded a Diploma in Agriculture from the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA), an MSc Diploma from the University of Ioannina and a Ph.D. degree from the Laboratory of Vegetable Production, Agricultural University of Athens (AUA). Since the beginning of 2014 she worked as Post-Doctorate Researcher at the Laboratory of Vegetable Production of AUA and is specialized on hydroponics, vegetable grafting, greenhouse environment and its impact on vegetable production and quality. She has extensive experience in determination of inorganic nutrients in plant tissues and soil samples and quality parameters, greenhouse gases, biological nitrogen fixation, antioxidant parameters of vegetables, metabolomics molecular biology techniques and bioinformatics tools. Her teaching experience includes lectures in Universities and Technological Institutes. She has published 43 papers in refereed international scientific journals, 21 in congress proceedings (Acta Hort.), 2 as book chapters and more than 70 as abstracts in national and international conferences. She is reviewer in many scientific journals and member of the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) and the Greek Society for Horticultural Science (EEEO). In the last 5 years, in addition to several national research projects, Dr. Ntatsi has been involved as researcher and Project Manager in European research projects (LEGUME FUTURES, EUROLEGUME) as well as in one LEONARDO Project related to plant irrigation and hydroponics (AGRICOM) and was MC Member and Editorial Coordinator of the FA1204 COST Action. Since 2017 she is participating in two HORIZON2020 research projects, particularly TRUE as WP Leader and Project Manager on behalf of the AUA team and TOMRES as Project Manager on behalf of the AUA team.
