Position: Ph.D. student


I studied Physics and continued with MSc in Computational Physics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I am currently a Ph.D. student at Jacobs University in Bremen, working in the i-CONN network, a program supported by the EU.


My PhD is embedded in the i-CONN network, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network project funded by the European Commission, under their H2020 programme. The goal of the project is to understand and manage complex systems using Connectivity Science from an interdisciplinary perspective. My work focuses on developing the theory underpinning connectivity by providing generic features of structural - functional connectivity relationships, namely relationships between the network architecture and network representations of dynamics. I am performing numerical, structural and analytical investigations of chaotic, excitable and diffusive systems with regard to this type of relationships.
