I grew up in Lefkosia and then 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. At Scripps I focused on dynamical processes that are at play in the ocean. Then, on May 2018, moved down under at the Australian National University. I joined the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes as a Research Fellow 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, a project that started on June 2021.
