Dr Kyriaki Drymoni has a BSc in Geology & Geoenvironment and an MSc in Applied Environmental Geology from National and Kapodistrian university of Athens (NKUA) expertise on the geology and petrogenesis of the Boeotia ophiolitic nappe and the volcanological study of the Santorini post-caldera eruptions, respectively. In 2015, she received the REID Scholarship (RHUL) to conduct a PhD in Volcanotectonics and especially on dyke propagation paths on Santorini volcano and the Aegean. Her research is based on the study of the movement of magma from the source to the surface, and it aims to facilitate our understanding of the fundamental factors which control volcanic eruptions and fracture formations. Her research includes numerical modelling of possible dyke paths in heterogeneous and anisotropic crustal segments and probabilistic modelling of the likelihood of a propagating dyke reaching the surface to erupt during volcanic unrest. The multidisciplinary study also introduces a coupled structural and petrogenetic methodology to study better the formation and emplacement mechanics of dyke swarms and Santorini volcano itself. She gained teaching experience as a visiting teaching assistant in eight modules at RHUL during her PhD and as a sessional lecturer in Igneous petrology, at RHUL after her PhD.
