Charalambos (Haris) Themistocleous

I am a linguist. My interests include speech, language, healthcare, and machine learning.

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Department of Neurology, School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA; I am also a researcher at Språkbanken, Department of Swedish, University of Gothenburg, Sweden.

In my current research, I focus on providing a computational model of how speech signals encode linguistic, sociolinguistic, and physiological information in healthy individuals and individuals with neurodegenerative conditions, such as Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA), Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI), and Alzheimer’s disease (AD).

I also focus on modeling how speech production is affected when language fails in the brain. To this end, I analyze speech and language productions from behavioral and tDCS interventions in participants with PPA and AD and cognitive and quality of life evaluations using machine learning and natural language processing.
