Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Student Profiles



I am currently reading for a Ph.D. at the University of Cambridge, working on the theory of rights and obligations of international organizations under general international law. My first degree was in Law at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (2007-2012), where I graduated with distinction. Thereafter, I studied public international law at Athens University (2012-2013) and New York University (2013-2014) as a Fulbright and AG Leventis Foundation ScholarĀ and was awarded the Jerome Lipper Prize for distinction in the field of international law. I spent the summer of 2014 working at the United Nations International Law Commission as an NYU International Law and Human Rights Fellow, before returning to Greece in order to complete my mandatory military service (2014-2015). In 2016 I joined the Athens Public International Law Center as a Junior Researcher and I taught international dispute settlement as an adjunct lecturer at the University of Athens.
