I am currently working for DG International Cooperation and Development (EuropeAid) at the European Commission. Specifically, I work for the Unit "Development Financing and Effectiveness, Relations with Member States" focusing on Joint Programming, Aid Effectiveness and relations with Member States.
Previously, I was the Deputy Team Leader of the European Year for Development (EYD2015) campaign in the Unit Communication and Transparency.
Before joining DG DEVCO, I was a spokesperson of the European Commission; trainee at the Cabinet of the President of the European Commission, Jose Manuel Barroso; Duty House Manager of the Theatre Royal Bath in the UK; University Teacher of International and European Politics at the University of Bath; Deputy Supervisor of the Self-Access Language Centre of the University of Bath, basketball coach of the University of Bath Men's 1st and 2nd Team; and a Sergeant in the Greek Army.
I hold a PhD in International Relations and EU Politics from the University of Bath. My thesis title is "Constructing the Western Balkans". I have a MA in Contemporary European Studies (EUROMASTERS Programme) and a BA in Economics and Politics from the University of Macedonia in Greece.
