I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Language Neuromodulation Lab, Department of Neurology, School of Medicine, Johns Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA.

I study the speech and language of individuals with Primary Progressive Aphasia and Alzheimer’s Disease to identify objective measures that can enable their diagnosis early, provide prognosis of their condition, and ultimately improve therapy. To this end, I employ natural language processing, acoustic analysis, and machine learning models (deep neural networks, SVMs, etc.),

In my earlier positions, I was a researcher at Språkbanken, Department of Swedish, and 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.
