Summary

My name is Gregory Gountanis and I have completed a degree in Environmental Engineering in 2013 from the Technical University of Crete, Greece (5-year programme, MSc equivalent).

Currently, I am a self-employed freelancer environmental engineer and the assistant bus programme manager at the bus agency of Arcadia (K.T.E.L. Arcadias) in Tripolis Arcadia and MSc student in Waste Management at the Hellenic Open University, Patras Greece.

During my time as a student at the Technical University of Crete I have had the opportunity to work on various projects related to hydrology, water resources management and modelling and environmental science. The proficient use of a wide range of commercial software required for such projects, provided me with a wealth of experience using programmes such as GIS, Matlab, FORTRAN well as water modelling programs such as SWAT.

My dissertation focussed on modelling (with Arc SWAT)the hydrological and chemical response of the Lysina catchment with the, an area which is located in the Czech Republic and has become the focus of several research programs (Soiltrec,
Geomon etc). This project was implemented through a comprehensive progress involving desk-based research and data analysis. The results of my study highlighted the importance of sustainable water and land management and how it can be controlled and predicted through effective modelling and monitoring.My academic career has equipped me with an analytical, efficient and innovative way of thinking that makes me the ideal candidate.

Being required to work in a field, completely different from the one I majored in, I developed many skills,such as taking decisions under pressure, analytical thinking and human resources management. I have achieved becoming a person who gives solution to any problem that occurs. I am a fast learner and I can easily adapt in different situations and positions. I can also be effective and productive under completely different sectors.Last but not least, I have gained valuable tools in self-management and discipline, building on my organisational skills in order to meet timelines and achieve results.

I am currently looking for a new challenge. Undoubtedly, it is time for me to pursue my career aspirations and take the next step

If you require any additional information please don’t hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely,
Gregory A. Gountanis
