I was born to a Greek family, but ended up spending my first childhood years in Brussels and then, Thessaloniki. Currently, I am based in London, UK.

From 2009 to 2014 I studied German Language and Literature at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In 2014 I moved to London where I completed postgraduate studies in Journalism at University of Westminster, and then in Education Policy at King's College London. Between 2014-2018 I worked for bio-bean and CNN International & Greece.

PhD / Academia
My PhD is focused on the rise of extreme right propaganda and media manipulation in Greece. Alongside my research I work as a teaching assistant and political consultant.

My theoretical framework emphasises a) the impact of the migrant crisis on the Greek economy, and the spread of islamophobia and xenophobia; b) the continuous rise of nationalism in Europe that has created a sense of economic isolationism throughout the continent. 

As a millennial and part of the generation that witnessed this new wave of right wing extremism, I am using my PhD research as an opportunity to understand more about their rhetoric, and ways political parties have used media to benefit politically from the economic crisis post collapse of Lehman Brothers.

At the moment I’m writing my PhD thesis, but also spend time in the studio.

I plan to publish some complex MAX/MSP patches created and programmed by yours truly. Watch this space.

In my spare time I enjoy  freelance writing, drawing (especially on my moleskine) & surfing.
