I hold a BSc degree in Mathematics and a MSc degree in Computational Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece). Afterwards, I moved to Barcelona (Spain) to carry out my Phd in the University Pompeu Fabra. During my MSc and Phd studies I worked with data-driven approaches that aim to characterize directional interactions between coupled dynamical systems. My current research involves the development of computational approaches to quantify  how altering network structure affects the dynamics that it can generate. Moreover, I am using optimisation approaches to study which perturbations in brain networks optimally suppress the generation of seizure-like dynamics.  I am working with Dr. Marc Goodfellow on the project “Quantifying uncertainty in perturbed brain networks: towards a decision support tool for epilespy surgery”.
