"I’m a Molecular Biologist and Geneticist by training with a Master's in Biotechnology. I completed my first Bachelor's degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics in 2015 at the Democritus University of Thrace, Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics in Alexandroupolis, Greece. My Bachelor thesis project, titled “Purification and biological activities’ study of C-phycocyanin from Spirulina platensis”, was under the supervision of Professor Raphael M. Sandaltzopoulos. Afterwards, I continued with my Master's studies within the Interdepartmental Programme of Postgraduate Studies “Biotechnology” at the University of Ioannina, Greece, from where I acquired my degree in Biotechnology in 2018 as a Bodossaki Foundation Scholarship recipient. My Master thesis project, titled “Study of the interaction between cytosolic acetoacetyl-CoA thiolase (ACAT2) and Rab5”, was under the supervision of Professor Savvas Christoforidis. Since December 2020, I’ve been a Ph.D. student and Marie Curie Fellow at the University of East Anglia (UEA) within the MSCA-ITN-ETN “NeuroTrans”. My project titled “Resolving coarse-grained dynamic distance constraints of the transport cycle of NSS transporters using EPR spectroscopy” is under the supervision of Professor Dr. rer. nat. Fraser MacMillan (FRSC)."
