Despite years of research, we have only a rudimentary understanding of neurodegenerative conditions, such as Primary Progressive Aphasia and Alzheimer’s Disease, that affect language communication and thus a limited ability to diagnose and treat them.

Employing data from acoustic analysis of speech signals, computational analysis of language, and human neuroimaging, I develop machine learning models that aim to identify automatic diagnostic and prognostic markers for these conditions.

I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Language Neuromodulation Lab, 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 earlier positions, I was a postdoctoral fellow at CLASP at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. Before that I have been a visiting scholar at the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies, Princeton University and a temporary Lecturer at the Department of English Studies, University of Cyprus.
