Biographical Details

Since February 2019, I am a Research Fellow at the Department of Statistical Science of the University College London. From January 2017 to January 2019 I was working as Research Associate at the MRC Biostatistics Unit of the University of Cambridge. I did my Phd on "Bayesian modelling of high-dimensional financial data by using latent Gaussian models" under the supervision of Prof. Petros Dellaportas and Prof. Omiros Papaspiliopoulos. I studied Statistics and Mathematics at a masters and undergraduate level respectively, both in Greece.

Research Interests

Bayesian modelling, inference for high-dimensional stochastic models.
