Personal profile


I completed my undergraduate (1999) and masters degrees (2001) in Sport and Exercise Science in Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. I moved to the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham where I did my PhD (2001-2005) and then to Belgium to work as a postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven, initially funded by a university project (2006-2008) and then by a research fellowship from the research foundation of Flanders (2008-2011). Since August 2011 I am a Lecturer in Psychology at Queen’s.

Research Interests

I am interested in the way sensory information (visual, vestibular and proprioceptive) and cognitive resources are used to control movement. My current work focuses on postural control by assesing sensory integration and cognitive resource allocation in this process in neurotypical, atypical and clinical populations including young and older adults, adults with autism, Parkinson's disease and major depression. The methods I use include posturography, motion capture, brain stimulation (TMS, tDCS) and neuroimaging (fNIRS).
