About me

I hold a medical degree from the University of Ioannina and a Master’s degree in neuroscience from the University of Crete, within the interdisciplinary graduate programme ‘Brain & Mind’. During my MSc studies, I gained broad experience in the field of both molecular and computational neuroscience. My assignments have focused on neuropharmacology, physiology experiments involving non-human primates (NHPs) and neurophysiological data analysis. Currently, as a member of Prof. Nordberg's Translational Molecular Imaging Lab, I aspire to expand my knowledge on molecular neuroimaging and neurodegenerative diseases biomarkers. In particular, I hold a special interest in the understanding of pathophysiological mechanisms of tauopathies, such as Alzheimer’s disease (AD), with the use of Positron Emission Tomography (PET) tracers, plasma and Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF) biomarkers. My goal is to combine the above methods with the clinical examination for the early diagnosis of AD and contribute to the development of disease-modifying treatments.
