In 2005, I graduated from American College of Greece with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. In 2006, I went on to complete my Master’s studies in Cognitive Neuroscience at the Radboud University Nijmegen in the Netherlands. During the 2nd year of my studies I conducted basic research at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behavior, Radboud University Nijmegen. In August 2008, I started my graduate (PhD) studies at the Department of Human Genetics of Leiden University Medical Centre. There, using mainly electrophysiology, behavioral analysis and various analytical techniques I investigated the causes and consequences of cortical spreading depression in migraine under the supervision of Prof. Arn van den Maagdenberg, and Prof. Michel Ferrari.
Since 2015, I am a postdoctoral researcher in the group of Prof. Giuseppe Testa. Currently, I use transcriptomics, epigenomics, behavioral analysis and iPSC-derived neural cultures to delineate molecular mechanisms and to discover druggable pathways to improve treatment of neurodevelopmental disorders including autism spectrum disorder.
