Degree in Physics from the Univ. of Athens, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Physics from the Ohio State University, USA. She held a Post-Doctoral “Marie Curie” Fellowship (Human Capital and Mobility of Researchers) at the University Joseph Fourier, Grenoble, France, and a “Marie Curie” Return Grant (Training & Mobility of Researchers) at IMEL-NCSR "Demokritos", Greece. She joined IMEL as researcher in 2003.She was Program Chair of Micro and Nano Engineering Conference (2019), Chair of SPIE Microtechnologies “BioMEMS and Medical Microdevices” (2013), co-chair of Micro and Nano Engineering (2008), in the organizing committee of Eurosensors (2011) and iPlasmaNano (2016), in the local organizing committee of Europt(r)ode (2014), and in the International Program Committee (IPC) of Micro & Nano Engineering Conference (since 2008) and μTAS (2012-2015). She is Editorial Board member of Biosensors (MDPI) and Micromachines
(MDPI), member of the Editorial Advisory Board for the Micro and Nanosystems journal and Guest Editor of four (4) Special Issues (in Microelectronic Engineering, Micro and Nano Engineering, SPIE, and Micromachines). She serves as regular reviewer in more than 20 peer-reviewed journals and has served as evaluator in various national and international research agencies (European Research Council (ERC), French National Research Agency (ANR), Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO), CRG KAUST, ELIDEK).
She has received several honors including two scholarships from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation, and the 2nd award in the Innovation Contest “Greece Innovates” of the Hellenic Industries Association & Eurobank (2013, co-leader of the awarded team). She has participated in 25 national and European projects (coordinator or principal investigator in 9 of them). She is co-inventor of 12 patent families, author or co-author of more than 130 articles in peer-reviewed journals, 14 articles in peer-reviewed Conference Proceedings and 2 chapters in books (6519 citations and h-index=45, google scholar). She is co-founder of a spin-off company (Nanoplasmas PC) and has acted as advisor of a spin-out company (Diagnostics-on-Board, Ltd).
During the period 2003-2010, she was responsible for the education activities of IMEL-NCSR “Demokritos”. She is now member of the Committee for Research Exploitation and coordinator & member of the Gender Equality Committee at NCSR “Demokritos”. She has supervised or supervises 6 PhD and 16 Master theses, and she is/was member of the advisory committee of 10 PhD theses.Her research interests include development of microfluidic/lab-on-a-chip devices and biomolecule microarrays for food safety and disease diagnostics, where the PCB-based approach emerges as a promising manufacturing technology. Organ-on-a-chip platforms. Mechanisms for liquid transport at the microscale. Plasma-based patterning and surface engineering of materials for control of wettability (with focus on superhydrophobicity/ superhydrophilicity, oleophobicity), biomolecule immobilization, and cell adhesion on surfaces, antibacterial surfaces.
