Biography

I joined the School of Media at Bournemouth University in September 2014. Prior to this, I was teaching at the University of Leicester and in several educational institutions in Greece (Akmi Metropolitan College, University of Athens, Technological Educational Institution of Ionian Islands). Moreover, I also worked as a research analyst in Greek market research companies (MRB S.A. and QED Hellas) and as communication consultant in various political campaigns, an NGO (‘ANIXI’) and the Hellenic Parliament. I am a HEA Fellow.

Research

My research lays at the intersection of media and politics. So far, I did research on political communication including political advertising, political campaigns, the use of SNS and digital applications (Twitter and selfies) by politicians and political parties. My research also includes projects on protests and social movements. My most recent work in this area involves the examination of the media framing of protests and social movements from the Indignados to the Hong Kong Umbrella movement, as well as the exploration of the broader relationship between protesters and activists and the different forms of art that are used as outlets for political expression.

My current research focuses on the production, publication and circulation of protest imagery drawing on empirical data from in depth interviews with photojournalists.

I welcome applications from PhD students interested in the following areas:

• Social movements, political activism and media technologies • Social movements, activists and the use of art • Media framing of political issues and protests • Photojournalism and protest • Political communication and digital media • Other topics in Political communication
