About me

As an undergraduate I studied at the department of Computer Engineering & Informatics (University of Patras) until 2015. In 2017 I received a M.Sc. in Bioinformatics from the Medical School of the same university. In the meantime, I worked at the EMBL in Heidelberg as part of a team trying to identify the therapeutic effect of RNA Binding Proteins in the treatment of 4 cancer types.

Currently, I am a PhD student at the University of Cambridge in collaboration with EMBL-EBI. My research focuses on the identification of the mechanisms that lead to the progression between the different stages of Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease and the identification of the best rodent models which summarise the human disease progression. My background is mainly computational and during my PhD studies I want to consolidate and extend both my computational and biological skills.
