Room 1:173, Polwarth Building
I received my B.S. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, in 2001. I went on to earn my M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH, in 2003, and PhD from the same institute in 2008.
I am a member of the Aberdeen Centre for Health Data Science, and I develop and use computational tools with the aim to improve human health.
I am very active in public engagement with research. I aim to be an advocate for women in science, and encourage young people to consider careers in STEM.
I am increasingly interested in open and reproducible research, and as a Mozilla Open Leader I have developed an online platform for sharing code and expertise for clinical movement analysis.
I develop computational tools, design experiments and analyse data to address clinical needs in the area of human movement disorders.
I am currently accepting PhDs in Applied Health Sciences, Engineering.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your research ideas further.
