Title of PhD: State estimation in the Cerebellum

Supervisor: Professor Chris Miall

I am interested in the role of the cerebellum in motor control and learning. My work involves running behavioural studies using a variety of motor tasks, sometimes in combination with stimulation methods like tDCS.


  • Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering
  • MSc in Biomedical Engineering


I studied Electrical and Computer Engineering at the Democritus University of Thrace, in Xanthi, Greece, between 2001 and 2007. In 2010 I received a MSc in Biomedical Engineering from the TU of Delft (the Netherlands). During my M.Sc. thesis, I collaborated with the Department of Neuroscience of Erasmus Medical Centre. Since March 2010, I have been employed as Marie Curie Fellow (ITN project “C7: Cerebellar-Cortical Control: Cells, Circuits, Computation, and Clinic”.), pursuing my PhD in the Predictive Sensory Motor (PRISM) Lab of the School of Psychology.
