I got involved

I hold an environmental engineering diploma from Democritus University of Thrace in Greece. During my master thesis I focused on indoor air pollution.  I have completed further master studies in atmospheric and climate science at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. My work concentrated on natural disasters related to climate changes. I have pursued internships and worked in Tunisia and Greece on environmental impact assessments, in Germany on process Engineering and in the energy sector for Alstom and Paul Scherrer Institute in Switzerland. I have worked in the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) for the MRI Europe network. My tasks were to facilitate mountain research cooperation between countries and regions and the long-term goal was to increase awareness of decision makers about the importance of mountains for all of Europe.

Currently, I am working on the project “Sustainable Samothraki” in collaboration with the Institute of Social Ecology at Alpen Adria Universität Klagenfurt. On this project, I develop and support the regional communication strategy and coordinate an organic waste separation project. I am also working at the Greek National Centre for Scientific Reserach “Demokritos” as a scientific programme officer since summer 2017. My tasks are to monitor funding opportunities, attend to events, follow webinars and disseminate information related to European funding schemes, coordinate the project related to the research thematic areas and patents of the centre.

Topics like community supported agriculture, society’s vulnerability to climate changes, natural disasters and how the society can face or adapt are my key interests.
