  • Post –graduate Diploma in Education, PATES/ SELETE, Athens, Greece (1990)
  • BSc in Biology, Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece (1995)
  • PhD in the Department of Biology, Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece (2005)

She has attended special training courses in Methodological advancements in Applied Fish Reproductive Biology, Age determinations of elasmobranchs and other bony fish, Single-species Length based Stock Assessment Methods, Indicators of Environmental Performance of the common Fisheries Policy, Analysis of metapopulations, Histological techniques.

She has participated in several Workshops, such as ICES and FAO Workshops on Sexual Maturity Staging of Hake and Monkfish (WKMSHM), Mackerel and Horse Mackerel (WKMSMAC), on “Age Reading of Red mullet Mullus barbatus and Stripped mullet, Mullus surmuletus” (WKACM), on Sexual Maturity Staging of Elasmatobranches (WKMSEL1 & WKMSEL2), FAO EastMed 1st Meeting of the Permanent Working Group on Stock Assessment, FAO EastMed WG on deep-water resources in the E. Mediterranean, on Age Estimation Methods of Deep Water Species (WKAMDEEP).

During her 24-year career as a researcher at HCMR, she has conducted research on Fisheries biology (reproduction, feeding, age and growth) mainly on demersal and deep fish species, Elasmobranches biology and ecology, Marine litter (on seafloor and ingested by marine organisms), deep-water resources, biodiversity and Ichthyoplankton taxonomy and ecology. She has participated in 27 national and international projects and she has the coordination of a European one.

She is a member of the Hellenic Zoological Society, the Hellenic Society of Ichthyologists and the Panhellenic Society of Technologist- Ichthyologists (Elected Member in the organization committee of the Panhellenic Society of Technologists Ichthyologists for the period 1991-1994). She has organized and co organized 2 International Workshops. She serves on the Editorial Board of the “The Open Fish Science Journal”.

She has contributed 15 papers in peer-reviewed journals, one book chapter, as well as more than 70 other publications (i.e., conference proceedings, special publications, newspaper and magazine articles) and co-authored 48 technical reports. She regularly reviews papers for a range of journals.
