Outside research

Communicating science with the public

A passion of mine outside research is science communication. It brings motivation in my research projects and it helps build strong bonds within society.

Astronomy activities with children

In 2008 I co-founded the international science education project GalileoMobile, that every year brings astronomy to thousands of children in remote areas of the world. In 2015 I coordinated the Constellation project, a network of schools across South America that performed astronomy activities together.

Public talks, interviews and popular science articles.

I have been invited for numerous public talks and interviews about my research and general science issues.

I write popular science articles regularly for "Α ΜΠΑ;", an online magazine targeted to women (in Greek). 

Finally, I am a science mentor for young women as part of the supernova foundation network

June 2017 - present

My project ORIGAMI is an effort to unveil the role of magnetic fields in the evolution of galaxies, and vice-versa. I design and perform state-of-the art simulations of magnetized galaxies at different redshifts.

Post-doctoral Researcher, Commissariat à l'énergie atomique, France.

October 2012 - April 2017

At CEA I was part of the ORISTARS ERC project, designed to explain the origin and evolution of interstellar molecular filaments. I worked on numerical simulations targeted to interpreting the observational results.

PHD thesis, LMU and Max-Planck Institute for Extraterrestrial Physics, Germany

September 2007 - February 2012

My PhD thesis, supervised by Andreas Burkert, was conducted under the IMPRS program in Munich. I worked on interstellar spherical shocks called superbubbles, and how their collisions can trigger episodes of star formation.

Work Experience

Interstellar filaments

I have been working for more than five years on the formation and evolution of interstellar molecular filaments, the sites where most local star formation is happening.



I work mainly with numerical simulations of astrophysical fluids. My current research involves simulating galaxies with different metallicities and magnetic fields, and studying their evolution.

About Me

I am a professional astronomer at the Foundation for Science and Technology in Greece, and a passionate science communicator. Over the past ten years I have been very active in the fields of the interstellar medium and star formation. Since 2017 I have been working on discovering the role of magnetic fields in the structure and evolution of galaxies.
