STUDIES
I was registered, after successful examinations, in the Department of Crop Production Science of the Agricultural University of Athens (AUA) in October 1989.
My undergraduate dissertation was worked out in the laboratory of Agricultural Zoology and Entomology of AUA. My dissertation was on the dynamic of aphid populations and associated natural enemies.
My PhD research was on Insect Ecology – Biological Control. The title of my thesis was: “Studies on the biological parameters and food preferences of the polyphagous predator Macrolophus pygmaeus Rambur”. This study was evaluated with the grade 10 (Excellent) by the examination committee and in November 2000.
I have attended several seminars that concerned Integrated Pest Management and Statistics.

ACADEMIC EXPERIENCE
Since 1995 I have been giving lectures to undergraduate students of the AUA on the subjects of: General and Systematic Entomology, Applied Entomology and Integrated Insect Pest Management.
I was employed as a temporary Lecturer in AUA from 2000 to 2003 and gave lectures and practicals to undergraduate students on the above subjects.
I have also been given lectures in the Postgraduate Program: “Plant Protection and Environment” of the Department of Crop Science of AUA starting on the academic year 1999-2000. The topics are on the Functional Biodiversity, Biological Control Advances, Mass Rearing of Natural Enemies.
I have contributed in the supervision of more than 20 undergraduate students and 6 postgraduate students.


PARTICIPATION IN EU COMMITTEES
I was a member of the EFSA (European Food Safety Authority, Plant Health Experts Panel) established at Parma Italy, 2006-2009. I have participated  regularly  in  the  Plenary  meetings  of  the  Panel  and  also  in  several  working  groups  related  to  the  evaluation  of  PRAs  and  also  in  the  development  of  guidance  documents  of  the  Panel. 
I was invited and participated in the evaluation panel of research project proposals submitted under a call of the FP7, in Brussels.

PARTICIPATION IN PROJECTS
I was involved in the projects:

- REBECA (EU POLICY SUPPORT ACTION, Priority 8.1-FP6-SSA-4 REBECA), that aimed to review the risks related to the use of Biological control agents in EU and develop the framework for the “Harmonized Regulation of Invertebrate Biological Control Agents” in the EU.


- (PYTHAGORAS II 2005-2007) “The Ecological Role of Biodiversity in Vegetable Agroecosystems” that was funded by the European Union and the Greek Ministry of Education and Religious Affairs. In this project the relationships between naturally occurring beneficial insects in the control of harmful pests on vegetable crops were extensively studied in the laboratory and in the field. The results clarified the role of the native flora species in the conservation the natural beneficials and the potential of using this natural vegetation in developments aiming to take benefit of natural resources in crop protection.
- “Intraguild Predation Among Biological Control Agents of Insect Pests: A New Approach with Considerable Practical Consequences in Quality Vegetable Production” that was funded by the Greek General Secretariat of Research and Technology (2007-2008). In this project detailed and innovative studies were conducted on certain aspects of the bioecology of key insect natural enemies of high interest for Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and Biological Control of insects pests in protected and outdoor vegetable crops. In the course of this project several aspects of the bioecology of insect polyphagous predators and their intraguild relationships were extensively studied. This project was built on the co-operation of the University of Montreal (Professor Eric Lucas) and the Laboratories of Ecology and Environmental Sciences and Agricultural Zoology and Entomology of AUA.
- EPET II 453 that concerned the “Integrated Management of Aphids and Aphidborne Viruses on Vegetable and Other Crops”, funded by the Greek General Secretariat of Research and Technology.

- Project of cooperation between Greece and Spain (IRTA INSTITUTE) entitled: “Polyphagous Native Predatory Bugs of the Families Miridae and Anthocoridae in Vegetable Crops” funded by the Greek General Secretariat of Research and Technology.


- “Integrated Management of Phyllocnistis Citrella Stainton (Lepidoptera : Gracillariidae), A New Pest of Citrus in Greece” that was funded by the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food.
- I have been nominated as a member of the Management Committee of the COST Action FP 0901 “Analytical Techniques for Biorefineries”.
- I have been actively involved in the control of the new invasive tomato pest Tuta absoluta in Greece.
- I have also contributed in several projects funded by the Greek Ministry of Rural Development and Food on IPM of vegetable and olive pests.

CONVENOR OF A WORKING GROUP
I am the convenor of the International Organization of Integrated and Biological Control of Noxius Animals and Plants / West Palaearctic Regional Section (IOBC/wprs) Working Group : “Integrated Protection of Olive Crops”.

PARTICIPATION IN WORKING GROUPS AND CONGRESS ORGANIZATION
I was co-organizer (together with Dr Oscar Alomar (Spain)) of the Symposium entitled: "Predatory Heteroptera: Recent Advances and Future Needs" in the International Congress of Entomology (Durban, South Africa, 6-12 July 2008).
I was responsible for the organization of the meeting of IOBC/WPRS WG on "Integrated Management of Pests in Protected Crops, Mediterranean Climate" at Chania, Crete, Greece (6-11 September 2009).
I have participated in the Organization Committees of the (IOBC/WPRS) conferences: “Integrated Control in Field Vegetable Crops”, that was held at Chania from 6-8 October 1997, “Integrated Protection of Olive Crops”, that was held at Chania from 29-31 May 2003 and the 12th Pan-Hellenic Entomological Congress, 13-16 November 2007, Larnaca, Cyprus.
I was a member of the Governing Board of the Hellenic Entomological Society in 2002 and 2003, 2007-2008.
I have been elected as General Secretary of the Governing Board of the Hellenic Entomological Society 2010-11.
I have participated with presentation in more than 30 Greek and International Congresses.
I actively participate in the following working groups of the International Organization of Biological Control (IOBC/WPRS): a) Integrated Control of pests in Protected Crops, b) Integrated Control of Pests in Field Vegetables and c) Integrated Protection of Olive Crops.
