Supervisor: Prof Hazel Screen
Expertise: I am a postdoctoral research associate with an interest in musculoskeletal biology and in particular the development of structure function in tendons. I completed a degree in Veterinary Medicine and an internship in Equine Medicine and Surgery from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, and subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Liverpool. I have expertise in tendon biology, molecular biology techniques, proteomics and a good understanding of biomechanics.

Brief Biography

I am a postdoctoral research associate with an interest in musculoskeletal biology and in particular the development of structure function in tendons. I completed a degree in Veterinary Medicine and an internship in Equine Medicine and Surgery from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, and subsequently undertook a PhD at the University of Liverpool. I joined QMUL in 2020 and I am currently working on a project funded by the Dunhill Medical Trust investigating the causes of age-related tendon injury. In my previous post I investigated the postnatal adaptation of the equine superficial digital flexor tendon revealing functional adaptation to loading occurred primarily in the tendon interfascicular matrix following loading.
