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 catastrophes 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. Currently I am working in the Mountain Research Initiative (MRI) for the MRI Europe network. My tasks are to facilitate mountain research cooperation between countries and regions and the long-term goal is to increase awareness of decision makers about the importance of mountains for all of Europe. I am also 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.

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