Focusing on the interdisciplinary domain of Neuroscience in (formal and informal) Education, I am interested to see how infants’ brain develops through sound and music. To achieve my goal, I am using neuroimaging (EEG-ABR), behavioral and observational methods.
I have been extensively trained and worked in many high profile institutions, including Harvard University (PostDoc in the Mind Brain and Education program and the Athinoula Martinos Centre for Biomedical Imaging), the University of East Anglia (PhD in Music Psychology), the UCL Institute of Education, University of London and its adjunct centre of Educational Neuroscience, as well as the International Brain Research Organisation (PostDoc training in applied neuroscience and neuroimaging). I have experience in industry across Europe, the USA and the Middle East, while I extensively publish in and review research for major journals in the filed. I am a member of the International Brain Research Organisation (IBRO), the International Congress of Infant Studies (ICIS), the International Society for Music Education (ISME), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA), UK, and I hold Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) with the National College for Teaching and Leadership, UK, and the Ministry of Education, Greece (QTS). Finally, I am collaborating with the World Health Organization (WHO) on mental health and clinical education/development matters, while I am a board member of the Bright Start Foundation (Early Years Education and Development) in Geneva.
