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 Scheller Teacher Education Program in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, and the MIT Office of Digital Learning.
My research interests reside in the areas of Early
Engineering, STEM Curriculum Development and Teacher Training,
and Educational Robotics and Software.
