I studied Philosophy, Pedagogy and Psychology at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens in Greece graduating with a first honours degree in 2003. I then completed my first MSc in Addictive Behaviours at the University of Liverpool in 2005 and worked for a while as a psychologist in Greece in different NGOs. In 2009 I completed my second MA in Applied Criminal Justice and Criminology at Swansea University gaining a distinction. As a result I received a PhD studentship. My PhD thesis explored the impact of stalking and criminal justice system responses to this type of abuse based on victims’ accounts. I was awarded my PhD in 2014 and I have since published papers for leading international journals such British Journal of Criminology and International Review of Victimology. In 2015 I took up a post as Lecturer in Criminology at Sheffield University (School of Law) where I was the module convenor for ‘Youth Crime and Justice’ and ‘Methods of Criminological Research’. I’ve joined Salford University as Lecturer in Criminology in September 2016.

My research expertise and interests include stalking/harassment victimization and perpetration, victim/victimology, interpersonal abuse and criminal justice system responses, violence against women and qualitative research methods.
