I received my PhD in Molecular Biology from the University of Athens and continued my research career as a Marie Curie postdoctoral fellow at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), Heidelberg, Germany. I moved to Imperial College London in 2005, where I am currently Professor and Chair of Infectious Disease and Immunity. I am also Adjunct Professor and Associate Dean at the Cyprus Institute, Cyprus. I am interested in the biology of infectious diseases, especially vector-borne, and how this may be affected by human interventions and the changing environment. Through my research, I wish to contribute to public health innovations and in improving human life. In addition to directing the VigiLab, I am convening a final year course at Imperial College on Advanced Topics in Infection and Immunity and lecturing in Immunology and in Advanced Topics in Parasitology and Vector Biology courses.
