BSc (Hons), MSc, PhD, CStat, FHEA, MRSPH

Short Bio

I was appointed Associate Professor of Biostatistics in the Medical School of the University of Crete in December 2018, following a post as tenured Lecturer (Assistant Professor) in Epidemiology and Medical Statistics at the University of Sheffield, UK (2014-2018), where I maintain an honorary position of Senior Lecturer at the School of Medicine and Population Health. 

My first degree was in mathematics (University of Crete, Greece, 1998), followed by a Master's degree in statistics and operational research (University of Essex, UK, 2000). I underwent training in applied epidemiology at the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Atlanta, USA, 2005). I earned my PhD degree from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Crete in 2007.

My academic teaching includes introductory and advanced topics in Medical Statistics, Epidemiology and Research Methodology in undergraduate programmes in Medicine and postgraduate programmes in Public Health and the Surgical Sciences. I supervise master and doctoral students doing applied and/or methodological research in these fields at the University of Crete. I also teach the core module Survival Data Analysis on the MSc in Biostatistics and Health Data Science at the University of Athens. 

I have over 15 years' experience in the design, data analysis, and reporting of clinical and epidemiological research studies in acute care hospitals and other healthcare settings. My published research comprises mainly collaborative applied and translational studies, with long-term interdisciplinary work on the clinical epidemiology of healthcare-associated infections, multi-drug-resistant pathogenic bacteria, and antimicrobial drugs. My experience includes prognostic factor studies, clinical prediction models, quasi-experimental and time-series studies for intervention evaluations, population-based cohort studies, complex sample surveys, systematic reviews, and meta-analyses.

In acknowledgement of my research contribution, the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America awarded me the William Jarvis Award in 2009. During 2010–12 and 2015–17, I actively contributed to the works of ECDC's European Network for Healthcare-associated Infection Surveillance (HAI-Net), serving as a member of the National Coordination Team to design and implement the first two national prevalence studies of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use in acute-care hospitals in Greece.

I achieved the status of Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), UK, in 2017, following an external evaluation of my experience, practice, and leadership of teaching and learning. In 2018, the Royal Statistical Society elected me to Chartered Statistician (CStat) status, which is the RSS's highest professional award.

The Royal Society of Public Health, UK, elected me Associate Editor for its journal "Public Health" (published by Elsevier) in May 2022 and appointed me Senior Associate Editor in February 2024. In May 2024, I joined the editorial board of "npj Primary Care Respiratory Medicine", the official journal of the Primary Care Respiratory Society UK and the International Primary Care Respiratory Group (published by Springer Nature), as an Associate Editor.
