Fungi, evolution of reproductive mode, symbiosis, bioremediation, transposable elements, multi-omic data integration, metagenomics, biodiversity

Researcher in Microbial Bioinformatics, with more than 10 years post-doctoral experience in the UK, Sweden, USA, and Greece. Initially trained in Biology (NKUA), I obtained a Masters and a PhD in Genomics (University Paris-Sud, France) and switched into Bioinformatics following a specialized course (Institut Pasteur Paris). In my research so far, I have investigated pathogenicity, symbiosis, and genome evolution in fungi and bacteria, using a range of data technologies and types (-omic, meta-, text). I have additionally taught Biology, Statistics and Bioinformatics at the BSc. and MSc. level as an Assistant Professor (American Farm School, Thessaloniki).
At HCMR, I am conducting research on marine fungi, which represent an untapped source of chemical and taxonomic diversity. Combining access to emerging -global and local- collections, and high-performance computing facilities, I generate and compare annotated genomes and transcriptomes of isolates from diverse habitats. Long-term questions in these data include symbiosis, adaptation to marine environments and reproductive mode. Areas of ongoing research include bioremediation/biotechnology (Plastomics, CMBR), and changes in marine animal symbiotic communities in climate change scenarios (MACCIMO).
