She graduated from the Higher Agricultural School of Athens from the Animal Production Department on 13-1-1988. She won an IKY scholarship after successful exams in November 1988 for a PhD thesis at the Agricultural University of Athens. She received her Ph.D. in December 1995 with a degree “excellent”. The title of her doctoral dissertation was: “Study of the genetic structure of the main Greek sheep breeds”. From October 1992 to April 1995 was researcher with contract in research programs of the Animal Breeding and Husbandry Laboratory. From 2005-2017 she was Lecturer, from August 2017 to December 2023 she was Assistant Professor, and from December 2023 to date is Associate Professor (Department of Animal Science) with a subject “Genetic Improvement of Farm Animals”.
