Short CV

I grew up in Didymoteicho, a small town in northern Thrace, Greece.
After high-school, I moved to Thessaloniki to study physics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In the context of my diploma thesis I worked on setting up a survey for finding Hot-Jupiter planets with a small telescope.

Between March 2010 and September 2013, I was as a graduate student at the Max-Planck Institute for Radioastronomy. The title of my Thesis was Multiwavelength Studies of Pulsars and their Companions [supervised by Michael Kramer and Paulo Freire].

Between September 2013 and October 2014 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at MPIfR.

Since November 2014, I am a Dunlap Fellow at the Dunlap Institute of the University of Toronto.

For my research I use observations and theory to tackle astrophysical problems related with neutron stars and fundamental physics. Among else, I use radio and optical telescopes such as the Effelsberg 100-m telescope in Germany, the 300-m Arecibo radio telescope in Puerto Rico, the Very Large Telescope in Chile, the Keck telescopes in Hawai, and the Gemini telescope in Chile.

My research mainly focuses on:

  • Millisecond pulsars
  • Neutron-star masses
  • The equation-of-state of cold, nuclear matter
  • Test of strong-field gravity
  • Properties and evolution of pulsar companions
  • Formation and evolution of x-ray binaries
  • Pulsar-Timing and Instrumentation
