Panagiota Simou

Panagiota Simou studied German Literature and Philosophy in the University of Athens. Painting and Art History was a passion from a very early age; therefore she attended several Art lessons in Painters Atelier and Museums. Nowadays she is a Ph.D. candidate in the field of BioArt (‘Science and Philosophy in BioArt’) in the Department of Audio and Visual Arts in the Ionian University, cooperating with the Bioinformatics and Human Electrophysiology Laboratory on BioArt creations merging Painting and Science.
