Equipment & Techniques
I am a psychiatrist working in liaison psychiatry and neuropsychiatry in Addenbrooke's hospital, and the Department of Psychiatry as part of Professor Valerie Voon's lab. I am interested in cognitive mechanisms and how these are disrupted across diagnostic psychiatric conditions, and the underlying neural mechanisms. I am currently working on how neuromodulation with pharmacological challenges and transcranial magnetic stimulation alters impulsivity and other cognitive constructs in healthy volunteers and addiction patients. I use pharmacological tools, cognitive testing, computational modelling, neuroimaging and other neuromodulation tools. I completed by PhD in the Dpt of Psychiatry in Cambridge University investigating the role of serotonin in a broad range of cognitive functions including response inhibition, reinforcement learning and emotional processing with Professors Trevor Robbins and Barbara Sahakian. I previously completed my MSc in clinical neuroscience in thee UCL Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging with Professors Ray Dolan (UCL) and Robb Rutledge (Yale). I hold a Medical Degree from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. I have undertaken all my speciaist psychiatry training in Cambirdgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust after gaining a competitive NIHR Academic Clinical Fellowship by Cambridge University.
