Short CV

  • BSc in Biology, School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (1986)
  • PhD in Biology, School of Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (1991), with the PhD research performed in the Department of Zoology of the Hebrew University (Jerusalem, Israel) under fellowships
  • Post-doctoral fellow at the Hadassah School of Dental Medicine of the Hebrew University (1991-1993)

Since 1995, she works as a Researcher at the Hellenic Centre for Marine Research, where she holds the position of Research Director since 2008 (at the current Institute of Marine Biological Resources and Inland Waters).

She has participated in 44 Research and Development Projects, in 21 acting as scientific coordinator and/or project manager. She has authored or coauthored 38 peer reviewed publications and one monograph, as well as 28 extended abstracts and 49 abstracts in congress proceedings and more than 75 technical reports and deliverables of research projects. She was a member of the Editorial Board of the Electronic Journal of Ichthyology and is a referee in several international scientific journals. She participates as expert in the IUCN working group for freshwater fishes and as an alternate member in the Natura 2000 Committee of the Ministry of Environment and Energy (2020-today).

She is a member of the European Society of Ichthyologists (EIS) since 1989 and elected board member of the EIS during the period 2001-2012 (2001-2007 Treasurer, 2008-2012 President). She is also a member of the Association of Greek Researchers since 1999 and elected board member during 2009-2015 (2009-2012 Secretary General, 2012-2015 President). In 2015-2019 she was appointed Deputy Director of IMBRIW and in 2017-2019 member of the Scientific Council of the National Documentation Centre.
