Biography

I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Data Science/Precision Medicine at The University of Edinburgh. I studied Statistics at The Athens University of Economics and Business (2017), and completed an MSc in Medical Statistics at The University of Southampton (2018). I did my PhD in Data Science/Precision Medicine at The University of Edinburgh (2022). I have previously worked as a Data Analyst at PREDICTA S.A. (former SPSS BI GREECE S.A.).

My research interests are machine learning, deep learning, medical statistics, cardiology and R Shiny app development as clinical decision-support tools.
