Academic associate, Cardiff Metropolitan University
BSc (hons/1st) in Biology (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece), MSc in cognitive neuroscience (Aston University, UK), and PhD in neuroimmunology (Cardiff Metropolitan University, UK).
Interested in the neurobiology of neuroinflammation and neurodegeneration, and especially in how certain factors can push an inflamed brain towards neurodegeneration. My specific focus during my PhD was on how different brain cell types contribute to neuroinflammation, and how they respond to it; I also examined how certain compounds can alter such a response towards a lower inflammatory response. During my MSc, I examined how conditions which have been lined to neuroinflammation (such as depression) can alter specific cognitive abilities with a focus on false memory formation.
