I am an undergraduate student at the 5-year Integrated ┬┤Master's program of the Department of Biological Applications and Technologies at the University of Ioannina in Greece. I completed my first 4 years of course studies at my home university and joined DOME for my 1-year experimental project and thesis at the beginning of the academic year 2021-2022. I am focusing on locating the Loripes orbiculatus' sulphur oxidizing symbiont in a free living state under the guidance of Dr. Margaret Vogel in the Marine Symbiosis group.
