I am Greek (from Athens) but I currently live in Amsterdam and I am Senior Researcher at Digital Society School (Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences). On ground, I have worked as full-time Faculty at the University of Barcelona, the Autonomous University of Barcelona, the University of California at Berkeley, the European University Cyprus and Wittenborg University of Applied Sciences. As far as Distance & Online Education are concerned, I have collaborated with UK Universities (Liverpool, Roehampton and Essex), as well as Walden University, the Open University of Catalonia and the Open University of Cyprus mainly teaching in post-graduate and PhD programs. I speak fluently Spanish, Catalan, Greek and English and I have intermediate level in French and Italian. As far as my education is concerned, I got my PhD. in Pedagogy from the University of Barcelona (Department of Research Methods and Diagnostics in Education). I also have 5 master degrees in a) Teaching and Learning in Digital Environments, b) Educational Assessment and Program Evaluation, c) Southeast European Studies, d) Management of Organizations in the Economy of Knowledge and e) Evaluation and Quality Management in Higher Education. My research focuses on new and emerging pedagogies, instructional design, digital transformation, teachers' training and professional development and quality assurance in distance education. In 2015 I was the winner of the International "David Wilson Award for Excellence in Teaching and Learning", which gave me funding and the opportunity to start a research on quality assurance e-learning course design standards among various universities worldwide. I am a committed lifelong learner and want to use my research to enact positive social change. For that reason, I am heavily involved with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, which are now part of any research project I lead.
