I started my career in healthcare in 2003 after completing my Midwifery training in Athens, Greece. Soon after I moved to London to get work experience and I completed the MSc in Midwifery in 2006 in Middlesex University.
I have worked as a midwife in different parts of the world (Greece, Finland, UK, UAE) and have gained clinical experience in all aspects of maternity care. I have always enjoyed working with students as a clinical mentor and I moved into higher educaton in 2018. I became a Lecturer in Midwifery in 2020.

My research interest is in the management of low risk birth and complex issues that influence the process. This is reflected on the research project I took during my MSc studies, where I examined the management of early labour by midwives in a low risk setting.
I have a special interest in health inequalities and I have worked with refugees in Athens in 2016.
