Eleftheria grew up in Greece, where she completed her B.Sc. in Chemistry. After that, she decided she really had enough with all the sun and sea, so she moved to Germany, where she did her master’s in molecular science at the FAU in Erlangen. During this time Elef gained a lot of interest in chemical biology (apart from Bavarian beer!) so she joined the Hackenbees for her master thesis. Little did she know, she would stay there for a few years, to develop chemical probes for studying functional protein phosphatases. In her free time, Elef likes to meet with friends, dance (even if she is alone in her room) and researching about how she could make her own fashion clothing line!
