Chief Executive Officer

General Probiotics Inc.

I founded General Probiotics (GP) and joined the company as Chief Executive Officer in 2017. At GP, I lead the development of antimicrobial technologies to fight bacterial infections.

I received a diploma in chemical engineering at the Aristotle University in Greece in 1994, and a Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Notre Dame in 1999.

In 2001, I joined the faculty in Chemical Engineering at the University of Minnesota as an assistant professor. I was tenured and promoted to associate professor in 2007 and to full professor in 2011. I raised $7 million in research grants, and I published over 100 peer-reviewed publications on antimicrobials.
