Following my undergraduate studies in History at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, I moved to London and received my MA in Contemporary History and Politics from Birkbeck, University of London in 2006. In 2010 I obtained my PhD in History from the University of Cambridge.
I was an Alexander von Humboldt Foundation Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Humboldt University of Berlin in 2012-2013. My research interests include youth cultures, travel, consumption, gender, migration, emotions and European identities.
My doctoral thesis offered a cultural history of politics, examining left-wing youth politics in relation to leisure and sexuality in post-authoritarian Greece in the 1970s. Since 2011 I have been working on a comparative and transnational history of young tourists from West Germany and Greece in the 1960s-1980s.
