Current position and affiliation

Part-time Instructor at the Department of Psychology, Deree - The American College of Greece.

Involvement with youth mental health and research interests and activities

I have graduated with an MSc in Developmental Psychology and Psychopathology from King’s College London. My main research interest is the intergenerational transmission of common mental disorders, mainly anxiety, depression, and trauma-related disorders.

I am also interested in maternal mental health during the perinatal period as well as the parent-child attachment.

Over the past years, I have been actively involved in several research studies, including systematic reviews and meta-analyses, that focus on mental health problems of at-risk populations.
