systems biology, microbial interactions, bioinformatics, data integration, network analysis
My research interests focus on microbial interactions and ecosystem functioning at the microbial dimension. As bioinformatics play a fundamental part in elucidating the undelying mechanisms that govern biological processes, I am developing methods to this end. By making use of knowledge aggregation and data integration, but also omics' and networks analysis, I am interested in understanding comprehending ecosystems' ecology.
In 2016, I joined the Bioinformatics MSc program in the University of Crete (2016-2018). During my master thesis, I became a member of lab42open* at IMBBC-HCMR. Since then, I have developed PEMA** , a pipeline for the analysis of metabarcoding data. PEMA has been selected from LifeWatch - ERIC for the analysis of the ARMS derived data. In the framework of the PREGO*** project, I am now conducting my PhD on microbial community ecology and ecosystem functioning .
