I’m an enthusiastic physical oceanographer, investigating long-term and abrupt changes in our oceans and their role in the climate system. I obtained my Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Marine Sciences from the University of the Aegean in Greece, and my PhD from the University Parthenope of Naples in Italy.

Currently, I am involved in several research projects that assess crucial water masses in the Ross Sea, which impact, among others, the stabilizing ice shelves that surround the Antarctic Ice Sheet as well as the global thermohaline circulation. As a physical oceanographer, I am well-versed in the acquisition, processing, and analysis of hydrographic data from a range of sources, including in-situ observations, reanalyses, and satellite-derived data.

In addition, I’m a member of the Training & Mentoring Team from ECOP (Early Career Ocean Professionals), APECS, and SCAR AntClimNow, because I firmly believe that collaborative research and outreach activities are essential to address the pressing issues our oceans face – particularly in remote polar regions. Although these regions seem sometimes like an entirely different planet, the changes occurring there will undoubtedly have a global impact in the coming decades. And while many of us conduct research for the sheer beauty of it, we must concentrate the majority of our efforts on the most pressing matters – collectively and inclusively.
  • Mentor Panels
    These panels are held at major international conferences and are coordinated by
    APECS members. Participation involves a 2-3 hour commitment on the day
    of the panel meeting.

  • Career Development Presentations
    Short presentations at conferences/workshops with a question/answer period.

  • One-on-One Mentoring
    Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
    alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
    management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.

  • Participation in live online discussions
    This will be advertised to all APECS members and will be facilitated by an
    APECS Council or Executive Committee Member. Transcripts will be
    posted online for future reference.

  • Reviewing Resumes/CVs and Assisting with Cover Letter Development.

  • Reviewing papers and posters

  • Online seminars
  • Telephone/Skype conversations
  • Email Exchange
  • IM/Chat
  • European Geosciences Union
  • SCAR Open Science Conferences
  • Other
Sure, include me in your list online
