Well.... what to say?

I am an Athenian, (that is a Greek not a Geek!) and have a B.Sc. in Physics from the University of Athens and an MA and (soon!) a Ph.D. in Science Education from the Institute of Education, University of London.

In my Ph.D. I evaluate the curriculum approach developed by the Nuffield Foundation sponsored 'Energy and Change' project, which is concerned with introducing ideas related to the Second Law of Thermodynamics in a way accessible to pupils aged 11 upwards.

My Ph.D. was supported by grants from the Onassis Foundation and the British Federation of Women Graduates. I was also awarded a British Council Fellowship.

While completing my Ph.D., I worked as a Research Officer at the University of Sussex on the pan-European project 'Science Teacher Training for an Information Society' (or STTIS for short) which was led by Roser Pintó of the Universitat Autónoma de Barcelona, Spain with other partners in France, Italy and Norway.

In case you are curious this is me......


I then worked with the ModellingSpace project at the Learning Technology and Educational Engineering Laboratory of the University of the Aegean, Rhodes. This is another large European project, part of the IST programme, which is co-ordinated by Angelique Dimitracopoulou and has partners in Belgium (the University of Mons-Hainaut), France (the University of Angers), Portugal (the New University of Lisbon), Greece (the University of Patras), and Spain (SchlumbergerSema).

I have presented my work at national and international conferences of science education such as the ones organised by the (British) Association for Science Education (ASE), the European Science Education Research Association (ESERA), the Groupe International de Recherche sur l'Enseignement de la Physique (GIREP) and the National Association for Research in Science Teaching (NARST). For more details see my list of conferences and publications.

Oh yes.... and I love Tim - isn't he a lucky guy!
