I am an Entomologist (PhD, 2006) and I belong to the teaching-scientific staff of the Laboratory of Entomology and Agricultural Zoology of the University of Thessaly, Greece. I serve the Department of Agriculture, Crop Protection and Rural Environment since 1995 (administrative staff, technician, researcher, adjunct lecturer, lab teaching staff).
My research involves insect biology, ecology, demography, behavior, population dynamics, effect of natural enemies and pest management. My PhD involved aphid ecology and population dynamics and currently I work with the research team of Prof. N. Papadopoulos in the field of fruit flies (Tephritidae). Other fields of insect ecology such as cold tolerance and dormancy are currently within my expertise interests, as well as monitoring of quarantine pests and their management in Greece.
