    Welcome! I am a Senior Researcher at the Institute for Astronomy, Astrophysics, Space Applications and Remote Sensing at the National Observatory of Athens. Before moving back to Athens, I spent 1 year at the Space Telescope Science Institute as a Giacconi Fellow and 3 years at the Carnegie Institution of Washington (DTM), as the Vera Rubin Fellow. I obtained my PhD in Astronomy in 2005 from Harvard University; my thesis was on “Accurate Distances to Nearby Galaxies”.
