Brief Portrait
I graduated (B.S.) from the School of Physical Education and Sports Sciences (DPESS) of the Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) in 1989, concluded my post-graduate studies in Sports Sciences (M.S.) in Syracuse University, NY, USA in 1991 and awarded a doctoral title (Ph.D.) by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, NC, USA in 1994. I worked as a faculty member in DPESS of DUTH during the period 2002-2015 and I've been working in DPESS of University of Thessaly at Trikala as an associate professor in exercise biochemistry since October of 2015. My academic work is in the field of exercise physiology with emphasis in exercise-induced biochemical and molecular adaptations. Specifically, my research interest are focused in the study of exercise-induced inflammation, overtraining, developmental exercise physiology, strength and conditioning (mainly in football and basketball) and sports nutrition. My published work includes approximately 100 scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals of well-established databases (total impact factor ~300, ~3.200 citations, H-index 29). I teach exercise biochemistry, sports nutrition, conditioning methods και resistance exercise training.
