Having aquired a Diploma in Electrical Engineering and a Masters
Degree in Advanced Digital Communication atthe Aristotle University
in Greece, and after having worked as a software engineer and
GUI developer, and as an educator in both formal and informal
settings for 10 years, in January 2008 I decided to leave Greece
and get enrolled at the Graduate Program in the pioneer School
of Engineering Education at Purdue University.
In August 2011 I acquired my Doctoral Degree in Engineering
Education. After serving as a postdoctoral associate
the MIT-SUTD Collaboration for three years, I am currently appointed as a research scientist at the MIT Office of Digital Learning.
My research interests reside in the areas of Early
Engineering, STEM Curriculum Development and Teacher Training,
and Learning Mechanisms for STEM.
