Profile

I joined the Centre for Prevention, Detection and Diagnosis at Wolfson Institute of Population Health as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Behavioural Science in July 2021. I hold a BSc (Hons) in Psychology from Panteion University (Athens, Greece), a MSc and a PhD in Health Psychology from the University of Bath.

I am particularly interested in conducting Health Psychology and Behavioural Science research in cancer prevention, detection, and early diagnosis at population level. I have experience in employing a mixture of methodologies and designs, including randomised controlled trials, experimental studies, cross-sectional and longitudinal questionnaire studies, and qualitative interview studies. After the completion of my PhD, which explored a novel conceptualisation of psychosocial stress – that of ancient and modern stressors – within a health context, I worked as a Senior Researcher on research projects relating to tobacco harm reduction and the public health impact of electronic nicotine delivery systems.

Currently, I am primarily working on research to understand patient psychological responses and healthcare professional communication practices in lung cancer screening and surveillance, aiming at developing evidence-based communication principles and resources for policymakers.
