About me

I joined Jan's group as a PhD student in October 2017. I studied Materials Science in Greece and during my degree I became familiar with mathematical and computational approaches to biophysical processes. Currently I study the dissemination of antimicrobial resistance using iDynoMiCS, an individual-based modeling platform.


My research focuses on antimicrobial resistance of microorganisms and the spread of antimicrobial resistance genes carried by extrachromosomal genetic elements called plasmids. I am fascinated by the mechanisms by which bacteria adapt in order to persist in a hostile environment with other competitive bacterial species.
