I was born in the Greek island of Samos and nurtured in Chania, Crete. I graduated from the Department of Primary Education, School of Education, University of Crete. I hold a master and a Ph.D. in the field of environmental education from the same University.

From 1998 to 2006 I served as a primary school teacher and from 2007 to 2010 as an Environmental Education Centre member. Since 2006 I teach at the Department of Primary Education, University of Western Macedonia (Florina), where I was elected as a Lecturer in 2009 and officially appointed in 2011. My carrent position is Assistant Professor in the same Department, and from the coming semester (Spring 2018) I’ll be transfered to the Department of Primary Education, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

My main research interests are in the area of education for sustainability (ESD), environmental education (EE), science education (SE), on children’s conceptions regarding environmental issues and on the educational uses of footprints (Ecological, Energy, Water footprints). I also interested in about the development, implementation and evaluation of teaching and learning methods and materials aiming to conceptual development of pre-service and in-service teachers on the above issues, along with the professional development of their teaching methods.
