About Me

I am a Senior Policy Analyst at the City and County of Denver where I work within the Office of the Independent Monitor's policy team to conduct systematic analyses of policy issues related to the Denver Sheriff Department (DSD) and the Denver Police Department (DPD).

I live with my family in Stonegate North Villages, an unincorporated community located in Douglas County, Colorado.

I was born and raised in Greece where I also earned a bachelor’s and a master's degree before moving to the United States, as a Fulbright Scholar, to complete a Ph.D. in Criminal Justice.
