Adelaide Graduate Research School

Division of Research and Innovation


I have a Bachelor of Midwifery from Greece and a Master of Applied Sciences from La Trobe University, Melbourne. I am conducting my Ph.D. at the Adelaide Medical School, University of Adelaide, and have been awarded an Adelaide Scholarship International. My research interest is in reproductive health and chronic non-communicable diseases. More specifically, my Ph.D. is focused on family planning and multiple sclerosis, with a particular interest in how to better support individuals with a chronic disease during their reproductive journey.
