Biography

I am a genetic epidemiologist by training, with a background in Dietetics and Nutrition (Harokopio University of Athens, 2008), having done my master (MMedSci) in the University of Sheffield (2010).
In the frames of my doctorate, I participated as coordinator of Hellenic Isolated Cohorts - HELIC project, studying the environmental effects (mainly in the form of dietary patterns) and genetic predisposition of several cardiovascular risk factors (2011-2016). I have been trained in statistical genetics and data handling during scholarship funded training in Welcome Trust Sanger Institute (2014). I worked at the Genetic Epidemiology Group in the University of Leicester (2017-2018) before joining the Institute of Cardiovascular Science, UCL as a postdoctoral researcher in Prof. Nish Chaturvedi's group.
