Biography

Studied Rural and Surveying Engineering at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In 2016, I obtained my Masters in Geomatic Engineering and Planning from ETH Zurich, with a focus on remote sensing. After working for the Agriculture Underwriting team of Swiss Re CorSo on forest fire detection using satellite images, I joined EARS BV in Delft, Netherlands. I have a strong interest on index micro-insurance, risk modelling and management and financial products for farmers using remote sensing.

  1. Overcoming challenges to deliver agricultural weather-index insurance

    This brief identifies and addresses key issues facing weather-index-based agricultural insurance. Drawing on diverse experiences from Africa and Central America, it zooms in on key challenges such as affordability, quality of weather data and models, raising awareness and trust in the benefits of insurance products and policy and regulatory frameworks. Scaling strategies require reliable products, access to the rural areas, increased awareness about insurance and cost-effective delivery channels.
