I completed my medical studies at the Medical School of Athens and undertook postgraduate studies at the University of Bolton (PhD) and the University of Glasgow (Wellcome Trust PhD Programme “Molecular Functions in Disease”). Before joining the QMUL History of Modern Biomedicine Research Group, I worked as a Research Associate at the UCL School of Pharmacy.


I currently serve as a Research Assistant to Professor Tilli Tansey OBE at the History of Modern Biomedicine Research Group, and get involved in the Group’s editorial work on the Wellcome Trust-funded Witness Seminar transcript series entitled “Wellcome Witnesses to Contemporary Medicine”. My current research at QMUL focuses on the coincidental factors that shape pharmaceutical innovation. My research interests fall within the following scientific fields:

  • Experimental Medicine
  • History of Medicine and Pharmacy
  • Medical Education
  • Neuropathology
  • Neuroscience
  • Pharmacology
  • Toxicology
