Contact details


I am a research fellow with background in mathematics and computational physics (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece). During my PhD in the University Pompeu Fabra (Barcelona, Spain) I worked with data-driven approaches that aim to characterise non-linear directional interactions between dynamical systems. Afterwards, I moved to the University of Exeter (UK) where I used mathematical modelling and optimisation approaches to estimate the outcome of brain surgery in epilepsy patients. I applied methods from graph theory, dynamical systems and time series analysis. Currently, I am analysing data derived from wearable devices in order to advance our understanding of various neurological disorders such as epilepsy and major depression.
