Short note

I received my B. Sc. in Physics (2005), my M. Sc. in Nuclear & Particle Physics (2007) and my Ph.D. in Space Physics (2012) by the Department of Physics of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece. Since then I worked as a Post-doc at IAASARS of the National Observatory of Athens and at the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens. I have been a Visiting Researcher at the Christian-Albrechts-Universitat zu Kiel (Germany), the University of Turku (Finland) and the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radiowave Propagation by N.V. Pushkov RAS (IZMIRAN) (Russia). In 2017 I was elected as an Associate Researcher at IAASARS/NOA.
