My Story

     I always loved Math, teaching and mentoring. I also was passionate about understanding how the world works. This led me to  study Physics in College. I did my undergraduate studies in Athens, Greece, at the Physics Department of the National Kapodistrian University of Athens. I then came to the US to do a M.S. in Applied Mathematics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. I did my PhD in Physics at the National Kapodistrian University of Athens with a fellowship from the National Center for Scientific Research "Demokritos".  My postdoctoral appointments were first in Brandeis University at the Nonlinear Dynamics Lab in the Chemical Department and then in Northeastern University at the MOBS Lab in the Physics Department and the Network Science Institute.
     During my whole career, concurrently to my research appointments I would also teach either at middle school, high school, or university level. In 2018, while being a postdoc at Northeastern, my passion for teaching and helping children learn, sparked a research interest in how people learn, which, in turn, led me to pursue a second PhD in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology, in the department of Human Development and Education at Boston College. En route to that PhD degree, I got a M.S. in Applied Developmental and Educational Psychology. I am now taking a break from the program while I am working at the Network Science Institute in the role of the Education, Outreach, and Diversity Coordinator.
