Our team is a diverse group of hard-workers, deep-thinkers, and flow-seekers, brought together by a shared belief in the potential of high technology to positively impact life on Earth. Our backgrounds range from astrophysics and engineering to geography and law. In addition to our core team (below) we maintain a distributed network of experts and consultants which stretches all the way across the Pacific.
Lefteris’ lifelong enthusiasm for space drove him towards launching Evenflow with Dimitri in 2015. An astrophysicist-turned-entrepreneur, Lefteris applies his knack for complex problem solving to developing novel high-tech concepts and bridging emerging solutions with market needs. As a keen sailor, Lefteris is guided by Galileo to keep his boat flowing evenly.
A social scientist from Nottingham Trent University, Dimitri’s career changed orbit in 2008 when he encountered the Copernicus programme. An unrepentant designer of complex spreadsheets, Dimitri combines a Greek aesthetic with British practicality in managing Evenflow’s communication and outreach activities. Dimitri finds his Zen moments spinning fire, playing the Bütone and slowly solving Rubik’s cubes.
With a background in engineering, Daire swapped his life of early morning helicopter commutes, while living on oil rigs in the North Sea, for the bustling streets of Brussels’ European Quarter. Building upon his technical experience with a Master’s degree in business and economics, Daire’s efforts now focus on emerging technologies and economic analyses, but primarily on reaching the lofty heights of one day becoming a pub quiz champion.
A natural explorer and observer, Asaf loves to turn insights into engaging communication experiences. Starting with an award-winning career in advertising, his passion for digital and social impact led him to the EU bubble. He managed pan-European campaigns for NGOs, EU institutions and global brands. Asaf gets his flow through music jams, crafting wood prints and riding skateboards or bikes in his NASA tech-inspired sneakers.
Her desire to explore new horizons and enthusiasm for learning led Lauriane from her academic career – lectureship and a PhD in economics – to Evenflow where she focuses on economic studies, analytical models and innovation. With a creative mind and insatiable need to discover new worlds, she’s developed various hobbies from hiking in remote areas to creating (and eating!) nice dishes made with vegetables directly from her garden.
Phil started his career designing spacecraft control systems, before changing tracks to take a deep dive into the world of Earth Observation. Two decades later, having worked on everything from data handling systems to user applications, he joined Evenflow to help bring technology and business together. When not wondering where the time has gone, he indulges in Italian language, cooking and opera.
Imagine a passionate political scientist with linguistic powers, creative prowess, and a knack for advocacy. That’s Thomas, and he is stoked to be part of Evenflow! Through experiences in international development organizations, he mastered the art of managing communication campaigns, deciphering their impact and bringing innovation to the table. At Evenflow Thomas links the realms of communication in development cooperation with Earth Observation.
Although he holds degrees in international business management from leading universities, Tim is an engineer at heart. Having spearheaded complex aerospace developments as lead project manager and fundraiser, he knows what it takes to get (space) technologies to market. Amongst his many other qualities, Tim is a certified rescue diver as well as a keen golfer.
When Ana was little, she wanted to be an astronaut. As an economist and EU believer, she worked for over 20 years in the private, NGO and public sectors in roles such as analyst, founder, trainer, contractor, tax inspector – even chairing EU Council Working Parties. These worlds collided in Evenflow, where amongst her myriad operational duties, she identifies truth and meaning behind every invoice.
Asparuh ventured into surveying GNSS projects at the edges of our planet – from the jungles of Cambodia through the deserts of Africa to the glaciers of Antarctica. His major super-power – cooking – secured him a Top 10 position in the MasterChef Bulgaria 2018 competition. Apart from culinary adventures, he fights the uneven battle for a more educated society through the powers of science communication.
Bringing with him a career’s worth of invaluable experience within UK and EU policy-making circles, Robert has been supporting Evenflow as a Senior Advisor since 2015. Drawing on his broad knowledge of EU space policies and the Copernicus programme, especially its in situ component, Robert provides his unique perspective to our work on strategic communications for EU agencies.
From a young age, Simo was fascinated by the universe and beyond, admiring fictional heroes like the X-Files’ Fox Mulder. With a Bachelor’s in translation and a Master’s in communications and public relations, he started his career communicating complex topics like Earth Observation and satellite navigation through videos, articles and events. Outside the office, you’ll likely find him trying new cuisines or wandering modern art exhibitions.
Ariana’s maritime studies steered her towards the sea but, ten years later, she finds herself supporting projects which analyse the ocean (and the land) using innovative satellite technologies. When she is not debating with her dog on various subjects – and losing! – she likes to build and remodel whatever she can get her hands on, as well as learning how to cook.
With an academic background in cultural sociology, Liza’s creative spirit and strategic thinking led her to Brussels to study the intersection between digital media and society. Her social media entrepreneurship prepared her for her dynamic role at Evenflow. Liza’s creative outlets include videography and browsing antique shops to hunt down funky pieces to add to her home decor.
Ruuta’s journey is the result of her conflicting passions for pragmatic analysis and creativity. After six years of managing the chaos of creative worlds, she decided to bring some creative chaos to the business world. At Evenflow, she helps develop “out-of-this-world” perspectives whilst thoroughly enjoying the complexities of finding a common language, both at work and in her various musical hobbies.
A keen Earth Observer himself – though mostly through the lens of his camera – Nico has been following the Copernicus and Galileo enabled innovations and emerging businesses for a long time now. His grandfather may have laid the foundations for this interest, as his collection of space-themed stamps included a Nicolaus Copernicus section. In his spare time, Nico enjoys what Belgium has to offer in nature, from hiking the Ardennes to strolling along the coast.
