I am a cognitive neuroscientist in the making who studied Psychology in Greece, went to Scotland to continue studying, decided to move to the USA to chase my academic ‘American Dream’ and I am now based in England. In 2010, I received my PhD from The University of Edinburgh.

During that time, I published my studies in international journals (phew!) and presented my work in conferences around the world (successfully, I’d like to think). In 2012, Europe finally decided to fund my work for 3 years via the Marie Curie International Fellowships scheme (long story).

I am currently a Lecturer in Psychology in Education but I am also affiliated with Haskins Laboratories (Yale University) and the University of Edinburgh (the first cut is the deepest). Please note that all my summer breaks are spent basking in the Greek Sun.
