Born and raised in Athens, Anna is a PhD student at the Sociology Department of the University of York in the frame of the project 'Health inequalities in European welfare states (HiNEWS)' funded by the NORFACE Network. In her research, she focuses on integrating intersectionality theory in the study of health inequalities in Europe and she is concerned both with the intersections of different dimensions of individual social positioning and with intersections at the contextual level and institutional imbrication. She has also worked for a side project on health inequalities among patients with motor neurone disease living in East London. Beyond her academic interests, Anna has been involved with the non-governmental sector in Greece, Egypt and the Netherlands with a special focus on tackling discrimination against immigrants and LGBT communities.
