  • MSc in Hydrobiology-Aquaculture, School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (1998-2000)
  • PhD in the Department of Zoology, School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2001-2008)

She has attended special training courses on static fishing gear selectivity (1999), and Scratchpads biodiversity online: social networking tool to build, share and publish biodiversity information (2012).

During 8/2010-8/2012, she has served as a scientific consultant of the “Panhellenic Union of Middle Range Fisheries Shipowners (PEPMA)”, and since February 2013 she has held a position as a research associate at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research.

She has research interests on fish systematics and distribution, alien fish species, fish biology and ecomorphology, feeding ecology of fish. She has participated in one national and 7 international projects.

She is a member of the editorial board of the following scientific journals: Acta Ichthyologica et Piscatoria, and Mediterranean Marine Science. She is also an official collaborator of FishBase (the largest electronic database on fishes), since 1999, and a member of the Greek group of FishBase consortium (since September 2004).

She has contributed 12 papers in peer-reviewed journals, 2 book chapters, one book, as well 38 other publications (i.e., conference proceedings, special publications, newspaper and magazine articles) and co-authored 5 technical reports.
