Eirini is a member of the Research Team at The National Archives. Her current research interests include digital humanities and digital archives. She is particularly interested in bringing together methods and theories from a range of disciplines that could essentially contribute to the rethinking of digital, archival and collection-based research. She is also excited about new ideas around the collection, storage, and research of born-digital records. As part of her role, Eirini is leading the Digital Experimentation workshops and Big Ideas Seminar series.

Eirini has extensive experience working on digital and interdisciplinary research projects across the Archival and Higher Education sectors. In 2015 she received a doctorate in History of Science from the University of Athens, and she has been a visiting scholar at the University of Cambridge and the University of Helsinki. Before joining The National Archives, she has been a researcher at the University of Warwick and an Associate Research Fellow at Birkbeck, London. In previous years, she spent more than 5 years working with the historical and digital collections belonging to the Historical Archive and the Lab for the Electronic Processing of historical archives at the University of Athens.

Eirini also is a Digital Research Fellow at the Research Centre for the Humanities, Greece; a member of the Digital Committee at the Royal Historical Society; and a member of ‘Data Science and Digital Humanities’ special interest group at the Alan Turing Institute.
