After growing up in Lefkosia, I headed off to Greece to study physics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. I obtained my Ph.D. in March 2015 under the supervision of Petros J. Ioannou on atmospheric dynamics and specifically on the formation of large-scale structures in planetary atmospheres. From September 2015 until April 2018, I worked as a NOAA Climate & Global Change postdoctoral fellow with Bill Young at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California San Diego. Since May 2018, I joined the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes as a Research Fellow. I am based at the Australian National University in Canberra and I am working mainly with Andy Hogg. On November 2020, I received a Discovery Early Career Researcher Award from the Australian Research Council to work on machine learning and ocean eddy parametrizations beginning early-mid 2021.
