Biography

Ilias is a Wellcome Trust Carreer Development Fellow and heads the Multimodal spectroscopy group (MMS) in the biomedical optics research laboratory (BORL) in UCL. His educational background is in Electronics Engineering and Medical Physics. Ilias main research interests are both in the development and use of optical techniques in medicine to monitor brain tissue oxygenation and mitochondrial metabolism. His most recent developed optical system (called pHOS) is being used by clinicians at the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery to monitor non-invasively brain tissue oxygenation and metaboism in brain injury patients. Currently Ilias work is centred in the development of the next generation of brain multimodal spectroscopy technologies through combination of optics and MR techniques to investigate hypoxic-ischaemia and neonatal encephalopathy.
