About Me


I am an experienced project and financial manager with extensive expertise in EU funded research projects. As a finance professional I provide my services to Universities and Research Organizations regarding EU funded research projects. I help both Greek and other EU Universities and Research Institutions & Organizations to secure the available funding and manage their research projects effectively, offering financial and administrative coordination. As an EU funding analyst and consultant I can provide solid advice and administrative support to a research project, managing and coordinating all the partners of the consortium. I guide successfully each partner according to the demands of each action and call, addressing the financial aspect of the research project to relief participants from the burden and bureaucratic procedures, dealing with every financial issue that may arise.

I collaborate closely with partners to deliver added-value services in order to help them meet their strategic, operational, and commercial goals. I have significant experience designing, managing, and coordinating European policy studies, research projects, and support initiatives in a variety of scientific domains. I am actively involved in all stages of a project life cycle meeting the demands of each action and creating ad hoc solutions for each project. I organize and monitor large scale projects, according to the EU standards and regulations and each project’s peculiarities and specific structure. I can easily identify financial issues of projects by checking and monitoring their progress, using specialized project management tools for research projects, like EMDESK and MS Project, together with Microsoft Excel spreadsheets, which contribute to the effective monitoring of work packages, deliverables, budget, person hours, funding, and expenses, enabling the creation of automated reports to evaluate the progress of the project. This helps with the interim and final reporting of the expenses and the funding, fulfilling the reporting requirement of each call and action of the grants. .



I hold relevant qualifications as I am a business school graduate with a BSc degree in Business Administration and Management and a MSc degree in Accounting and Finance with specialization in Finance. I am currently employed at the Democritus University of Thrace at the Special Account for Research Funds Unit where I provide my project and financial management expertise. I deal with university research grants, graduate programs, clinical trials projects, EU funded programs and national research actions, providing administrative and financial support to professors. In the past, I worked in the real estate industry as a consultant. I speak Greek and English fluently and I am a licensed A’ Class Accountant in Greece from the Economic Chamber of Greece.  My research interests lie within the broader area of asset pricing. They involve empirical asset valuation, stock market, commodities, time series analysis, financial markets, equity valuation, financial structures and investment appraisal.
