Keywords: Biostatistics, data analysis, routine data, social sciences, primary care

I’m a statistician and I’m working as a research associate in Primary Care Unit of the University of Cambridge. I have studied applied mathematics and I hold a PhD in applied statistics in social sciences.

Having completed my studies in Greece I came in the UK in 2017 to cover a maternity leave. I stayed further in my post and now I have my own research project on multimorbidity in stroke survivors, I’m involved in many different projects conducted by others and I’m teaching biostats, epidemiology and statistical issues on routine data of primary care. I’m mostly interested in topics around cardiovascular diseases, primary care services, health inequalities, routine data, sexual minorities, multimorbidity, mental health, behaviour, health policy, data science and research methodology. I’m also keeping my interest in social sciences supporting, as a consultant, the Laboratory of Experimental and Social Psychology of the Panteion University in Greece. Through this collaboration, I’m investigating public trust in institutions, political ideology and social attitudes.
