BSc in Biology, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. MRes in Bioinformatics, Leeds University, UK. PhD in Bioinformatics, University of Manchester, UK. Post-doctoral researcher, University of Lausanne, Switzerland. EMBO long-term postdoctoral fellow, VIB/UGent, Belgium. Postdoctoral researcher, University of Cambridge, UK. Since 2010, Assistant Professor of Bioinformatics in Genomics and since 2015 as director of the Bioinformatics Research Laboratory, at the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, University of Thessaly, Greece. My research is purely computational and has focused on the evolution of post-translational regulation, like dimerization of transcription factors (bZIP, bHLH and Nuclear Receptor families) and especially post-translational modifications, like protein phosphorylation and methylation. Other major research interests include viral evolution/recombination and primary/secondary metabolism in microbes.
