Christina hails from Karditsa in Greece, and obtained a Physics Degree fromThe Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Subsequently she spent a year at King’s College London undertaking a Masters in Physics, during which she undertook a biophysics-oriented project entitled Single-Molecule FRET with Photoswitchable Fluorescent Proteins, and had her contibution acknowledged in a number of posters, including “Characterisation of the FRET Pair Dronpa / Photoactivable mCherry to Perform Single Molecule FRET”. Christina is based in Prof Kate McGrath’s lab at Victoria University of Wellington and is working towards a PhD involving, among other things, SAXS and bulk rheological measurements on biopolymer networks. The work forms part of the MacDiarmid and Riddet Institute Funded project: Investigating the Mesocule; that is being carried out with Sandy, Luigi and Pablo. In her spare time Christina is practicing to play the tambourine just like her hero Robert Plant.
