I received my BA at the University of Crete in Greece and my Ph.D. at Columbia University, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, under the supervision of Dr. Dimitris Thanos. I remained at Columbia University for my postdoctoral studies, which I conducted in the laboratory of Dr. Richard Axel, studying the mechanisms of olfactory receptor gene choice. I started my independent career in 2007, in the Department of Anatomy at the University of California San Francisco, where I continued working on the transcriptional regulation of olfactory receptors. I recently returned to Columbia University as a Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics and as a member of the Zuckerman Mind, Brain, and Behavior Institute.
