I studied Chemistry at the University of Patras (Greece) where I graduated in 2011 with a Diploma thesis in Mn complexes with interesting magnetic behaviour (SMMs) under the supervision of Prof. Spyros P. Perlepes.

During my MSc thesis, under the supervision of Prof. Vassilios Nastopoulos in the same univeristy, I studied the crystal engineering and metallo-supramolecular organisation of cobalt complexes with various organic ligands and took my first steps in the field of X-ray single-crystal diffraction.

I joined the Cronin group in 2014 with the aim of exploring the fascinating world of Mo blues and related POM compounds in continuous flow systems, using linear and networked reaction approaches.
