Dr Georgios Ntinas holds a PhD degree from the School of Agriculture (Dept. of Hydraulics, Soil Science and Agricultural Engineering) of Aristotle University Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece (2012). His PhD research focused on experimental and numerical study of a hybrid solar energy-saving system acting as a hydroponic grow gutter in a greenhouse with tomato cultivation and included greenhouse experiments and the development and validation of a dynamic mathematical model to simulate the thermal behaviour of the solar system. He has worked as a postdoc researcher at the University of Aarhus (AU, Denmark) where he studied airflows around agricultural structures, at National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA, France) where he parameterized heat and mass transfer coefficients for experiments in flux chambers, at AUTh for the production of energy from organic wastes, at Hellenic Agricultural Organization-Demeter (HAO, Greece), where he carried out the research project AgroETAK “Optimized Management of Tomato Crop Nutrition-Fertilizers: Investigating Energy-Agrochemicals Input and Determining Carbon and Water Footprint for the Production of High Added Value Products” and at Technical University of Munich (TUM, Germany), where he received funding to determine the carbon footprint in a semi-closed greenhouse. From 2014 until 2019, he has worked as a lecturer with teaching assignments of the courses “Systems Analysis as a Research Method” (6 academic semesters) and “Ecophysiology: Technical Procedures and Principles of Protected Cultivation” (2 academic semesters) at TUM. He has published 22 papers in international scientific journals, he is a reviewer in 15 international journals, and he has presented his work in many scientific conferences, seminars and workshops. He has participated as a coordinator, work package leader and research associate in 3 European and 8 national programs, while he is a member of scientific associations, societies and unions.
