    Personal profile

    General

    I obtained my first degree in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). I then did a one-year MSc in Biochemical Engineering at University College London (UCL), followed by two years research under the supervision of Prof Peter Dunnill (OBE). I won a Marie Curie Research Training Grant and moved to the Center for Process Biotechnology (CPB) at the Technical University of Denmark (DTU), where I obtained my PhD degree in Biotechnology. In 2002 I took up the position of Senior R&D scientist and Purification team leader at the Pharmaceutical company ALPHARMA (now Xelia Pharmaceuticals), before returning back to the UK as a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Birmingham and then Lecturer in Chemical Engineering at Loughborough University. I joined Aston in November 2015.
