I moved to Australia as CSIRO Future Science SynBio Fellow to work on synthetic biology and metabolic engineering applications of cyanobacteria. I did my PhD in Biotechnology at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, focusing on the photosynthetic production of diterpenoids. I obtained my B.Sc in Biology from the University of Athens, Greece, and my M.Sc. in Applied Biotechnology from Uppsala University, Sweden.
I am a member of the executive board (communications) of Synthetic Biology Australasia, and I actively engage with the synthetic biology communities. I am also community editor for PLOS Synbio.
