From 2015 to 2018, I was an Assistant Professor of Criminal Justice at Mercyhurst University. Between 2014 and 2015, I was a Visiting Faculty member of Criminology at the University of South Florida Sarasota-Manatee. Prior to that, I was an Adjunct Assistant Professor of Criminology at the Faculty of Communication and Media Studies of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, and a Senior Research Associate at the University Research Institute of Applied Communication.

I completed my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree in Criminal Justice as a Fulbright Scholar and Gabbard Research Associate Fellow at the University of Cincinnati, under the direction of Professor Bonnie Sue Fisher.

Prior to that, I worked as a journalist for online and traditional newspapers and magazines for almost a decade (as a regular member of the Periodical and Electronic Press Union of Greece).

I hold a bachelor’s degree with honors in Communication and Media Studies and a master’s degree in Political  Communication and New Technologies from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens.
