Having diverse experiences practicing in various nursing administrative positions in children hospitals in Athens, Greece and teaching in other educational institutions such as the University of Athens (Greece); Athens Graduate School of Management (AGSM), Nottingham Trent University, United Kingdom; and University of Alberta, I joined University of Victoria, School of Nursing as a faculty member (limited term) in January 2011. I accepted an Assistant Professorship in a tenure-track position in July 2014.


My research interests are focusing on knowledge translation (e.g., research competencies) and evidence-based practice and policy in health. Other areas of interest include leadership, organizational culture, and healthy aging. I have devoted 40% of my academic time and participated in grant writing and research activities with several multi- and interdisciplinary research teams within Canada and internationally (e.g., Brazil, Chile, China, Greece, Sweden, Turkey, United Kingdom). Particularly, a detailed list of the research activities and my studies that have been completed or are still in progress can been found in the regularly updated ORCID site: http://orcid.org/0000-0001-6094-567X 



My teaching experience in other academic environments contributes to a personal approach to teaching and learning guided by the social-constructivism learning theory and the Community of Inquiry (CoI) framework. The theory emphasizes the importance of the context and culture, where teaching and learning occurs. The CoI framework highlights promotion of three core “presence” elements (i.e., cognitive presence, social presence, teaching presence) that align with pedagogical approaches at online learning results. I devote 40% of my time in educational/teaching activities (on campus and online) that mainly focus on my personal interest and expertise including research competencies as essential step toward knowledge translation activities and, in turn, evidence-based practice. Teaching, supervision of graduate students, and contribution to the School of Nursing undergraduate and graduate programs are my major educational roles, in which I revise curricula and serve in education committees. To date, I have developed and taught online and on campus courses focused on qualitative and quantitative data analyses (NURS 425), research methods (NURS 360, NURS 508, NURS 604b), applied statistics for evidence-based practice (NURS 405, NURS 510), and evidence for advanced practice nursing (NURS 524) in both undergraduate and graduate education programs.
