I am an astrophysicist studying the formation of stars and planets, with main focus on the accretion and ejection processes in low mass protostars. Currently I am a research associate at the University of Vienna and PI of the projects PROTEUS and JetPro* , funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG). During my past engagements in Vienna I have been leading the data collection efforts for the Disc-Analysis E.U. FP7 project. I am actively involved in studying the origin, evolution and impact of jets and outflows from embedded protostars through their emission in atomic and molecular lines with space- (e.g. Herschel, Spitzer, JWST) and ground-based facilities (e.g. ALMA, SMA, APEX). In parallel I study the evolution of protoplanetary disks since their early formation in protostars to their evolution in T Tauri and Herbig Ae systems with observations spanning from the X-rays to cm wavelengths.
My career path started from Athens, Greece where I graduated in physics and received masters degrees in astrophysics and in business administration. Before reaching Vienna I was a graduate fellow in the Spitzer Science Center in Pasadena, a Marie Curie fellow (JetSet, E.U. FP6) at the Osservatorio Astronomico di Roma and a postdoc at the Centre for Star and Planet formation and at the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen.
