Our Academic Committee is made up of prominent university faculty members from throughout the United States. The experience of these educators helps to ensure that our evaluation process maintains a high level of professionalism, transparency, and fairness.
We are so pleased to welcome Dr. Dimiter Angelov, Dr. Maria Kaliambou, and Dr. Stavroula Sofou to our Academic Committee:

Dimiter Angelov, PhD, Dumbarton Oaks Professor of Byzantine History, Harvard University

His research and teaching focus on the intellectual, political, and institutional history of the Byzantine Empire. His diverse scholarly interests include empire and imperialism, the history of political thought and rhetoric, biography, geographical thought and imagination, and the impact of the Fourth Crusade on the Byzantine world. He supervises students interested in any aspect of Byzantine and medieval Balkan and eastern Mediterranean history. He is the author of Imperial Ideology and Political Thought in Byzantium, 1204-1330 (Cambridge, 2007) and The Byzantine Hellene: The Life of Emperor Theodore Laskaris and Byzantium in the Thirteenth Century (Cambridge, 2019).

She held post-doctoral positions at the University Charles-de-Gaulle Lille 3 and in Princeton University. In 2006, her dissertation received the “Lutz Röhrich prize” in Germany as the best dissertation in oral literature, and in 2011 the European Commission elected her as “Erasmus Student Ambassador of Greece”. In 2006 she published her first book Home – Faith – Family: Transmission of Values in Greek Popular Booklets of Tales (1870-1970) (in German), and in 2015 The Routledge Modern Greek Reader.

Her research focuses on the dialogue between folklore and book history, particularly in the diaspora. Also, she is interested in foreign language pedagogy, especially teaching Modern Greek.

Stavroula Sofou
Associate Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering
Johns Hopkins University

Stavroula Sofou is an associate professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at the Whiting School of Engineering. Prof. Sofou’s research interests revolve around fundamental studies of lipid bilayers, with applications to drug delivery. She harnesses intermolecular and interfacial interactions of self-assembling materials in a biological setting, and, combining this knowledge with engineering principles, she designs successful devices to promote human health. Translational research on testing and optimization of these devices, as both diagnostics and therapeutics for medical applications, are her special interest. Stavroula Sofou received the Research Scholar Grant of the American Cancer Society as well as awards from the Coulter foundation, Susan G. Komen, and NYSTAR.
