"Εducation helps us improve not only as scientists, but as people as well. Studies abroad gave me confidence and helped me understand what's good or bad in my country."
Eleni did her postgraduate studies in UC Davis, in the field of geotechnical engineering. Her postgraduate studies gave her the opportunity, when she came back to Greece, to start out her career in a very important infrastructure project, the construction of Egnatia Motorway, but also she brought expertise that improved the overall framework of public works in Greece.
