Born in Athens in 1974, he studied Chemistry at the University of Athens and graduated from the École Normale Supérieure de Lyon (ENS). His Master's degree was obtained from the Institute of Nuclear Physics of Lyon on particle and nuclear Physics. He earned his PhD on Solid-State NMR in the Solid-State NMR Group of the ENS under the direction of Prof. L. Emsley. He was a post-doctoral fellow in the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Materials Sciences Division) and University of California Berkeley, invited by Prof. A. Pines, where he developped methods and instruments for high-resolution magnetic resonance in the presence of inhomogeneous and rotating magnetic fields.

In 2004 he joined the Laboratory of Structure and Dynamics using Magnetic Resonance (LSDRM) of the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA in Saclay), as a tenured staff principal investigator. In 2008 he was awarded a Starting ERC grant for the project R-EvolutioN-M-R.

In 2017 he joined the Faculty of Bioscience Engineering of the Katholic University of Leuven, as a Professor in Nuclear Magnetic Resonance. His research is performed at the Department of Microbial and Molecular Systems, in the Center of Surface Chemistry and Catalysis.
