Biography

I obtained my BSc and MSc in Statistics from the Athens University of Economics and Business (Greece). In 2012, I was awarded my PhD in Statistics. My thesis entitled 'Bayesian Nonparametric Modelling of Financial Data' was done under the supervision of Prof. Jim E Griffin at the University of Kent (UK). Next, I undertook a traineeship at the European Central Bank (Germany). From February 2013 to January 2015, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the group Mathématiques et Informatique Apliquées at AgroParisTech/INRA (France).  I was working on the EPIREG (Epigenetic Regulation) project, which aimed at the identification of chromosomal regions activated or inactivated by epigenetic mechanisms. 

Currently, I am a postdoctoral researcher at Systems Biology Ireland  working on the sysVASC project under the supervision of Prof. Walter Kolch. The objective of sysVASC is  to develop a systems biology approach in identifying molecular targets for therapeutic intervention in coronary cardiovascular disease
