Biography

Dr. Maria Anastasiadou graduated from the School of Agriculture, Department of Animal Production, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 2006.
She received her Master of Science in 2008 at Laboratory of Physiology of Nutrition of Farm Animals, Department of Animal Production, School of Agriculture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
She continued her studies for a doctoral thesis at Laboratory of Physiology of Reproduction of Farm Animals, Department of Animal Production, School of Agriculture, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, where she obtained her Ph.D. at 2013.
Next, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at the Hellenic Agricultural Organization-DEMETER, Directorate General of Agricultural Research (formerly NAGREF), Veterinary Research Institute, Thermi-Thessaloniki, Greece, in the period from 2014 to 2015.
From 2016 to date, she works as a Research Associate in Technological Educational Institute, Department of Animal Production, Greece.
In 1 March of 2017 she will be appointed as a researcher at the Animal Research Institute, General Directory of Agricultural Research, Hellenic Agricultural Organisation-DEMETER, Paralimni Giannitsa 58100, Greece.
She participates in the research team and management committee in 3 European Research Projects (2 COST Actions and 1 ARIMNET) and 1 National Research Project. Also has been member of the research team in four Research Projects (1 European and 3 National).
