Biography


My research focuses on South East European civil-military relations, mobilizations, and mass politics in the 19th and 20th centuries. My dissertation will study the so-called “war decade” (1912-23) that proved to be a transformative era for Bulgaria, Greece, and the Ottoman Empire. My studies and research have been funded by the A.G. Leventis Foundation and the UT Department of History.

I hold a BA in History & Archaeology with specialization in History (2007) and a second BA in Political Sciences (2014) from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Greece. I completed my first Master of Arts (MA) in The History of Warfare (2008) at the War Studies Department at King’s College London, United Kingdom. My master dissertation explores the crisis management, the military mobilization, and the evacuation operation planned and executed by the British government and its Armed Forces during the 1974 Crisis in Cyprus. I, also, earned a second Master degree in Balkan & Turkish History (2013) at the School of History & Archaeology at AUTH. My master thesis analyzes the development of United States policy and American diplomats’ and officials’ perception of geographic Macedonia and the Macedonian Question between 1944 and 1950. Its adaptation and expansion will be published by the Society for Macedonian Studies (Thessaloniki, Greece), where I worked as a research assistant between 2007 and 2012.
