Dimitris Sakellariou

King’s College London

Dimitris is neural informatics postdoctoral researcher with a background in physics, signal processing and methods development. His main interest is the investigation of epilepsy biomarkers in neurophysiological data using advanced computational technologies, including brain connectivity, graph theoretic models and machine learning.

Previous Experience:

Dimitris has more than six years of experience in computational analysis of EEG related to epilepsy and sleep and has previously worked as a research assistant and research associate in national and EU-funded programmes.
