  • Associate Professor (Teaching)
  • Population, Policy & Practice Dept
  • UCL GOS Institute of Child Health
  • Faculty of Pop Health Sciences

I gained a BSc degree in Statistics from the Athens University ofEconomics and Business (AUEB) and an MSc degree in Statistics from LancasterUniversity (funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council). I joined the UCL GOS Institute of Child Health in 2008 with a primary scope to develop a wide range of short statistics courses open to anyone interested in learning new statistical skills. Soon after, the Centre for Applied StatisticsCourses was born. In August 2014, I was promoted to Senior Teaching Fellow after 6 years of continuous pedagogical progress in the field of statistics.  Since early2020 I have been co-directing CASC along with the Founder of CASC, ProfessorAngie Wade. I was awarded my PhD viva in April 2020 on the topic of Copula models and their application within paediatric data. From January 2022, I am the sole Director of CASC and very excited to see CASC to continue to develop in the field of statistics teaching. Later in 2022, I was also successful in my promotion application to Associate Professor (Teaching) which took effect at the beginning of October 2022. 

Research Themes
Research Summary

My research interests lie in the ways statistical science can enrich all aspects of life and ways of delivering its various aspects and interpretations to non-statistically orientated audiences.

Throughout my time at UCL I have collaborated with several colleagues and students to publish papers in various journals. I have also contributed in teaching-statistics conferences, journals and books.  

My PhD studies were focused on multivariate analysis and ways multidimensional outcomes can be better explored. I specifically focused on the use of copula models and the advantages they can provide in the better understanding of data in paediatrics.


Teaching Summary

I thoroughly enjoy teaching statistics and making the statistical science understandable to all - along with my colleagues at the Centre for Applied Statistics Courses (CASC) we strive to meet this goal via short statistical courses on a variety of topics. We use lay language with minimal statistical terminology/equations and plenty of practical exercises to put theory into practice.

Since I joined GOS ICH I have led numerous short statistics courses and have also co-led MSc modules for several MSc running at UCL, as seen below:

Short Statistics Courses:

Introduction to Research Methods and Statistics
Introduction to Logistic Regression
Sample size estimation and power calculations
Introduction to R
