Jonilda Kushta received her B.Sc. in Physics, M.Sc. in Environmental Physics / Meteorology and PhD in Meteorology / Atmospheric Modeling from the University of Athens, Greece in 2002, 2006 and 2014 respectively. During 2006-2015 she worked as research associate at the Atmospheric Modeling and Weather Forecasting Group at the University of Athens. Since December, 2015, she is a postdoctoral researcher at the Energy, Environment and Water Research Center of the Cyprus Institute working on air quality modelling. Her fields of expertise include atmospheric modeling, air pollution, dust cycle in the atmosphere, impacts of pollutants on regional weather, severe atmospheric phenomena (e.g. hurricanes, floods, dust storms). As a researcher she has participated in more than ten (10) international and national projects related to atmospheric processes, air pollution and climate change. She is one of the main developers of RAMS/ICLAMS model that treats explicitly the direct and indirect aerosol effects in the atmosphere. She has sixteen (16) publications in peer review journals and more than 30 presentations in scientific conferences on atmospheric fields.
