Oct. 2021 - Present

Geo-social Analytics Lab

My research in the geo-social anlaytics lab focuses strongly on natural language processing (NLP) using transformer-based models such as RoBERTa and BERT-based custom models for large-scale geospatial, sentiment analyses of textual data. I have supported projects on geo-epidemiological research, network analyses for conspiracy theories on the web, and projects that focus on information fusion.

Work Experience

GIS Consultant

Oct. 2022 - Nov. 22

UNICEF Greece, 

Watershed Greece MKO

Following heavy flooding on mainland Greece, a rapid WASH assessment was to be conducted for project funding to improve water access certain heavily damaged areas. I was able to join the work team with the responsibility of geospatial data and mapping support: acquisition and analysis of very high resolution satellite imagery, elevation data, existing WASH data, survey data that was collected on the ground, conversion of historic WASH data, and overall data integration. I provided both static outputs and web-hosted interactive maps to accompany the assessment.

BA International Development


Sept. 2014 - Jul. 2017

Norwich, UK


During my BA my focus gradually shifted towards the area of health and humanitarian situations within international development.


My dissertation explored the internationally coordinated response to the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa and it's policy implications for the future. Key arguments struck a somewhat critical note by pointing out that international power and policy structures continue to remain too inflexible and exclusive to powerful and central actors to enable effective and quick coordination between all stakeholder who may be able to contribute to successful crisis response.

My particular interest lies in the cross-over of humanitarian, crisis or emergency situations with health issues and how these are dealt with.
