I have studied Politics (Goldsmiths College) and Communication (City University and University of Athens). Prior to Bournemouth University, I was teaching at the University of Leicester and in several HE institutions in Greece. I also worked as a research analyst in Greek market research companies and as a political communication consultant in various political campaigns, and the Hellenic Parliament. My research lays in the intersection of media and politics, including political communication, digital political campaigning, media framing, protests and social movements, visual communication and photojournalism. I am the Programme Leader of the MA International Political Communication at the Faculty of Media & Communication at Bournemouth University and Convenor of the Centre for Politics and Media Research.
