I come from a family of electrical engineers, and as long as I can remember, I have always liked building stuff and solving problems. Naturally, I studied Electrical Engineering, and I obtained a BSc from Frederick University in Cyprus, where I became even more interested to the topic. Therefore, I decided to study for a postgraduate taught degree. This was when I move to Scotland and got an MSc in Electrical and Electronics Engineering from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow. Seeing how broad my field of study is, and how fascinating learning new subjects is, I decided to push myself out of my knowledge comfort zone. I applied for a PhD where I was a researcher for four years at the Nanobiophotonics research group at the University of Strathclyde, where my research focussed on microscope development for biological applications.
I recently joined OSC as a KTP Associate in collaboration with the University of Highlands and Islands. My work focuses on the development of passive acoustic monitoring and noise measurement systems. I am looking forward to learning more about marine mammals and underwater sound detection and I am excited that my work pushes towards solving environmental problems.
Out of work, I enjoy hiking along the coast of Scotland and hill climbing on the Highlands. My indoors hobbies are music, playing mandolin and Cretan lyra, and whittling.
