I was born in Greece in 1978. In 2003, I graduated from the Psychology department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and moved to the city of Granada in Spain. That same year I joined the Human Psychophysiology Group at the University of Granada and began my training as a clinical psychophysiologist. I worked as a research and teaching assistant from 2005 to 2009 when I received my PhD degree in clinical psychophysiology. During my training years, I obtained a solid background in cardiorespiratory physiology, neurophysiology, statistical physics, time series analysis, and scientific programming. From 2010 to 2013, I worked as a postdoctoral research fellow at the Laboratory of Experimental Economics in University Jaume I in Castellón. I am currently an associate professor of Psychology at the Loyola University of Andalucía and affiliated researcher at the Psychology, Ergonomy and Physical Activity research group at the University of Granada. In 2012, together with Michael Taylor and Varvara Trachana, we co-founded Open Scholar, which I serve as a director.
