She holds a BSc in International and European Studies from the University of Macedonia (Greece) and an MPhil in Environmental Policy from the University of Cambridge (United Kingdom). She is a mixed-methods researcher and has conducted evaluation and impact assessments for the European Commission, the UK government and charitable trusts.

Anna has worked in the business, the not-for-profit (NatCen Social Research) and the supranational (European Commission, UNESCO and CEDEFOP) sectors, across a range of public policy projects, which include social, economic and environmental policy themes. Her research interests are policy evaluation, green economy, green skills, climate change, renewable energy and resource efficiency.

She was awarded a PhD studentship sponsored by the University of Westminster and linked to the UK’s Centre for the Evaluation of Complexity Across the Nexus (CECAN). Her research project explores how complexity could be evaluated in the low-carbon transition system from a policy perspective, while taking into consideration the synergies and trade-offs of the nexus.
