Eleni Michalopoulou is a PhD student at the Department of Chemistry in Bristol University where she is studying the discrepancies between bottom-up inventories and top-down estimates for the gases CF4 and C2F6. Coming from a background in Physics she focused her early studies on Environment, Meteorology and Oceanography. At the end of her degree she joined the Hellenic National Meteorology Service where she worked on the verification of numerical weather prediction models, work for which she was awarded the Best Young Scientist award at the 12th International Conference on Meteorology, Climatology and Atmospheric Physics COMECAP 2014. Additional work included the study of extreme weather phenomena, distribution of microplastics within a marine environment and the meteorology and oceanography of the Aegean Sea.
