Vascular Surgeon with a demonstrated history of working in the hospital & health care industry. Skilled in Vascular Surgery, Clinical & Basic Research and Medical Education.
I received my medical degree from University of Crete (UOC) in 1998 and a MSc in Endovascular Surgery from the Medical School of University of Athens (2011). My PhD Thesis (2009, UOC) focused on the computational simulation of the hemodynamic performance of Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms.
After successful completion of basic vascular training in University Hospital of Heraklion, Crete, Greece, I worked in the Vascular Department of St. Bonifatius Hospital in Lingen (Ems), Germany (2010, Directors: Hartmut Goertz, Joerg Tessarek). Since 2010 I serve as Consultant Vascular Surgeon/Assistant Professor of Vascular Surgery at Democritus University of Thrace, University Hospital of Alexandroupolis, Alexandroupolis, Greece.
My major scientific and research interest focuses on the computational simulation of hemodynamic performance of abdominal aortic aneurysms, aortic endografts as well as peripheral arterial disease.
I am actively involved in the pre- and postgraduate Academic Teaching of Vascular Surgery as clinical tutor and instructor in doctoral research projects. I participated as author or coauthor in more than 120 scientific publications (first Author in more than 70) indexed in Pubmed and in 4 international book chapters relative to vascular surgery.
