Overview

My name is Konstantina and I was born in Athens- Greece in 1985. I got my BSc in Classical Archaeology at the University of Ioannina, my MSc in Archaeological Sciences at the University of Bradford, and my PhD at the University of Manchester. I have worked as an osteoarchaeologist in Greece, Spain and Romania, and also as a geneticist at the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology throughout my PhD and my role as a Research Associate. My research interests involve ancient DNA from archaeological human remains for the purposes of disease identification, kinship analysis, and population genetics. I have extensive wet lab experience as well as large scale computational data analysis, and I am forensic trained. I recently got appointed the position of a junior lecturer at the KNH Centre of Biomedical Egyptology and I am the head of the KNH laboratory.
