Athina is a postdoctoral scientist at the NeuroGenomics & Translational Bioinformatics Laboratory since Nov 2022. Thematically, Athina’s research interests lie at the confluence of body, brain and behavior - endeavouring to unpack further the distal effects of peripheral systems on brain structure-function, that in turn affect mental states. In brief, her current postdoctoral research activities aim to extend her doctoral research on psychoneuroimmunology through integration of ‘multi-omics’ data (epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics), as well as electronic health records (phenomics) in depression and PTSD. Athina gained a BSc (Hons) in Medical Sciences (Neuroscience) from the University of Edinburgh and an MRes in Experimental Neuroscience (Imperial College London), before completing her PhD in functional neuroimaging studies of inflammation-linked depression at the Brain Mapping Unit, University of Cambridge, UK.
