In 2016, I completed my master’s degree in “Public health and food safety”, while I started my PhD at the University of Thessaly in the same year. In 2020 I received my PhD (Grade: Excellent) in Food microbiology and safety.

I joined UWE Bristol in 2021 as a Postdoctoral researcher working in the group of Dr Alexandros Stratakos with a focus on Sustainable Agri-Food Production.
