Biography

I hold a BA in History & Archaeology with specialization in History (2007) and a second BA in Political Sciences (2014) from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH), Greece. Moreover, I completed my first Master of Arts (MA) in The History of Warfare at the War Studies Department of King’s College London, United Kingdom (2008). My master dissertation was about ‘The British Military Reaction during the 1974 Crisis in Cyprus’. The dissertation explores the crisis management, the British military mobilization and the evacuation operation of the British nationals by the British Armed Forces. I, also, earned a second Master degree in Balkan & Turkish History at the School of History & Archaeology of AUTH (2013). My master thesis entitled ‘The United States Policy on the Macedonian Question, 1944-50’. The thesis analyzes the development of United States policy and American diplomats’ and officials’ perception on Macedonia and the Macedonian Question. An adaptation and expansion of my master thesis will be published by the Society for Macedonian Studies (Thessaloniki, Greece), where I worked as a research assistant for five years in various research programs.

My main research interests lie within the fields of Modern and Contemporary Balkan and Ottoman/Turkish History, especially in the study of nationalism and war-related mass violence from a political and social perspective within a comparative framework.
