Short CV

  • BSc in Biology, School of Biology, Faculty of Science, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2010)
  • MSc in Hydrobiology and Aquaculture, School of Biology, Faculty of Science, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2013)
  • PhD in Biology, School of Biology, Faculty of Science, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2021)

She is a fisheries biologist and her research interests focus on fisheries discards, habitat suitability models (i.e., Generalized Additive Models, Hierarchical Bayesian Models) and habitat mapping to aid in the effective management of marine fisheries resources. She has contributed 3 papers in peer-reviewed journals and 3 other publications (i.e., conference proceedings).
