My name is Maria Bakoutsi and I am currently in my 3rd year of my studies in the faculty of Biochemistry and Biotechnology of University of Thessaly. I was born in Thessaloniki, but I live in Larissa due to my studies. Regarding my extracurricular academic activities, I love dancing, volunteering and participating in scientific and diplomatic conferences. I speak English and French in advanced level. As far as my role in Thessaly Science Festival is concerned, I am responsible for finding teams and individuals that could participate in the festival, as well as for searching for sponsorships
