Ms. Georgia Christodoulou
Head Librarian & European Documentation Centre Manager
University of Nicosia Health Library
Since 2011, Georgia Christodoulou is the Health Head Librarian and European Documentation Centre manager, who is responsible for all the UNIC main library structured trainings, and teachings & outreach activities on the EU. Georgia graduated in Computer Science (Bachelor honours) and in Decisions Sciences (Masters), based in Operation Research, at the University of Westminster, London. The success in her studies led her to becoming a researcher at St. George’s Hospital Medical School (London) and then a Research Fellow at the University of Westminster (London); for over 15 years she worked on local, government and European projects that focused on bettering the quality life for all. Her teaching and public speaking skills were developed through creating and lecturing a short course on Geographic Information Systems (GIS); co-supervising Masters and PhD students; training lecturers and researchers. She is required to present/teach audiences of different levels, age-groups and expertise, both at the university and at high-profile conference/trainings (by the European Commission), where she incorporated effective classroom/training techniques, which facilitated interactive learning and provided flexibility to meet the needs of all learners. Throughout her career, teaching and communicating information has been a key to her success and, therefore, she continually searches for ways to captivate her audience.
