I am currently a Rosalind Franklin Fellow and an Associate Professor of Science Education at the Institute for Science Education and Communication at the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. I was born and raised in Cyprus where I worked as an Assistant/Associate Professor of Science Education at the University of Nicosia (2006-2016) and at the Open University Cyprus (2015-2016).
I received my M.Sc and PhD in Curriculum and Instruction with a specialization in Science Education from the Pennsylvania State University in the USA. Upon its completion I worked as a Research Associate at the NSF-funded Center of Informal Learning and Schools (CILS) at King's College London.
My research is associated with theoretical and empirical explorations of beginning elementary teachers’ learning and development with the use of qualitative, interpretive approaches.
