Personal profile


I am a PhD candidate in the department of Social and Cultural Anthropology and a member of the Infra-Demos research group. I work on, and with the, self-organised solidarity structures in Greece. My research focuses on the transformative and paeticipatory infrastructural potential of those grass-roots networks, especially on the fields of social reproduction.
