Title of PhD: Multisensory Processing in children with autism
Supervisor: Dr Joe McCleery
I am interested in multisensory processing in children with autism and typical developing children. This work involves running of experiments with familiar/unfamiliar audiovisual events using EEG/ERP techniques.
I earned a first class BSc in Psychology from the University of Ioannina Greece (2009), and a MA in Inclusion and SEN from the University of Birmingham, School of Education (2011). I have trained in several clinical settings for children and adults with neurodevelopmental disorders in Greece and I have four years of experience in teaching, counseling and volunteering in a range of settings and organizations for children with autism and their families in England and Greece.
On April 2010 I awarded a 3-year, full time studentship from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (I.K.Y.) after achieved the first rank nationwide in the Foundation’s special competition. I am a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society.
