They worked under the supervision of Dr. Chris Danezis, Assistant Professor, Head of Geoinformatics of the ERATOSTHENES Centre of Excellence (ECoE), Liaison Officer for the Governmental Departments, Organisations and Industry of the ‘EXCELSIOR’ H2020 Teaming Project and Head of the Geodesy Lab of the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics/Faculty of Engineering and Technology of the Cyprus University of Technology.
