Ms. V. Evageliou studied Chemistry at the University of Athens and then obtained her Ph.D. degree from Cranfield University, UK. From 2002-2006 she taught at the University of Thessaly (Veterinary Department) and the Technological Institute of Lamia (Departments of Nursing and Physical Therapy). Since 2006, she is  at the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition as a Lecturer (2006-2012), an Assistant Professor (2012-2018) and currently as Associate Professor (2018-...)  in the field of Food Physical Chemistry.

Her scientific interests include the study of physicochemical properties of food (e.g. gelation, emulsification etc.), the study of hydrocolloids in solutions and gels using rheology, DSC, etc., the development of new products with reduced sucrose, the retention of aromatic compounds from biopolymer matrices, biopolymer food applications (e.g. in the freeze drying of aromatic plants, t in the antioxidant activity of food, in edible films and coatings etc) and Emulsions.
