I received my Degree in Biology at the University of Athens (1988) and my PhD at the same Department (1994). From 1996 to 2001, I worked as Research Assistant at the Zoological Museum of the Univ. of Athens. In 2001 I was elected as a Lecturer (Ecology of Terrestrial Animals) at the University of Patras (Dept. of Biology), and as an Assistant Professor (Ecology and Biogeography of Terrestrial Animals) in 2006. In January 2012 I started working as an Associate Professor of Ecology and Biodiversity (and Professor from 2018) at the University of Cyprus (Dept. of Biological Sciences).
My research interests lie in the field of biodiversity pattern analysis, with emphasis on terrestrial arthropod communities. In particular, I am interested in questions within the framework of island biogeography, at both the theoretical and the empirical levels, and the factors that determine or affect diversity in insular biota. I also explore the differentiation of arthropod taxa in insular regions and along elevation gradients, at both the phenotypical and the molecular levels. Furthermore, I am an expert in the taxonomy of terresrtial isopods (Crustacea, Isopoda, Oniscidea) and have described some 20 species new to science. In addition, I am involved in research of ecological, evolutionary and behavioral aspects also of other organisms, such as reptiles and birds, even marine groups and fossil species. Overall, I am interested in the study and conservation of biodiversity of Cyprus and Greece. Finally, I consider of prime importance the communication of science and the scientific way of thinking to the society at large.
