I have been a Research Associate of the Digital Curation Unit since October 2013. I am currently working on Europeana eCloud and DARIAH-GR / DYAS projects. In 2012 I worked on web developing and database construction for the Micro & NanoResearch Association, located at the IMEL- NCSR Demokritos, while before that I worked on similar projects for the Technological Educational Institute of Athens. In 2003-2004 I worked as Research Assistant at the Ethnography Laboratory of the Faculty of Anthropology and History at the University of the Aegean, where I was responsible for indexing the ethnographical resources of the Lab and developing a relevant database.
My academic background is in both the Humanities and Social Sciences, as I hold a degree in French Language and Literature from the University of Athens and a Master’s degree in Social Anthropology from the University of the Aegean (2004). Additionally, I have followed a specialization programme on Methods of Gathering and Analyzing Research Data in Social Sciences at the University of the Aegean as well as a professional training programme on Promoting the Cultural Heritage and Cultural Creativity through Multimedia. Finally, from 2005 to 2009 I was working as a doctoral student at the EHESS, Paris, on a thesis regarding alternative socialization in the context of which I conducted fieldwork in several European countries.
