From the 10th of January 2019, I am an Assistant Professor at the Physics Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in Greece. My appointment is at the section of Astronomy, Astrophysics, and Mechanics.

A Brief History of (my) Time

I studied physics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, where I received my PhD in 2012. 

After finishing my PhD studies I received a DAAD fellowship to do a short postdoc at the Institute for Astronomy and Astrophysics at the Eberhard-Karls University of Tubingen, Germany where I stayed from September 2012 until the end of March 2013. 

I then moved to SISSA in Trieste, Italy where I was part of Professor's Thomas Sotiriou research group on challenging general relativity (with whom I have an ongoing collaboration). I stayed in Trieste from April until the end of December 2013, when I moved with the rest of Sotiriou's group, to Nottingham. 

In Nottingham, I was a Research Fellow at the University of Nottingham, at the School of Mathematical Sciences, working on compact objects and the spacetime around them, in General Relativity and in alternative theories of gravity. I stayed at the University of Nottingham from January 2014 until the end of March 2015.

At the end of July 2015 I moved to Oxford Mississippi, in the US and from the beginning of August 2015 until the July 2016 I was a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Physics and Astronomy Department of the University of Mississippi working for the group of Professor Emanuele Berti.

In August 2016 I moved to Lisbon, Portugal, and from September 2016 until September 2017 I was a member of GRIT, the gravitation research group at IST (Instituto Superior Tecnico). While I was there I applied for an FCT 3+3 years fellowship. My application was successful (2016 call, SFRH/BPD/119750/2016), but due to bureaucratic reasons I had to let that fellowship go.  

In October 2017 I moved again to Nottingham and from the 1st of November 2017, and for a period of 3 months, I was again at the University of Nottingham with Professor's Thomas Sotiriou research group. 

At the end of February I moved to Rome, Italy, where from the 1st of March 2018 and until the end of 2018, I was based at the Physics Department of the Sapienza University of Rome, working with Assistant Professor Paolo Pani on his DarkGRA project (ERC).
