I was born in Kastoria, a small town in northern Greece where I finished school and then moved to Thessaloniki to study Sport and Exercise Science in Aristotle University. After completing my undergraduate (1999) and masters degrees (2001) I moved to the School of Psychology, University of Birmingham where I did my PhD (2001-2005). I subsequently moved to Belgium to work as a postdoctoral researcher at KU Leuven, initially funded by a university project (2006-2008) and then by a research fellowship from the research foundation of Flanders (2008-2011). Since August 2011 I am a Lecturer in Psychology at Queen’s.

Research Interests

I am interested in the way sensory information and cognitive resources are utilised for optimal motor behaviour. My work focuses on (1) Life-span development of sensorimotor and cognitive processes (2) multisensory integration in postural control and (3) timing of rhythmic movements, using Neurophysiological (TMS, TDCS), cognitive (working memory, executive control) and Developmental (Life span) approaches.


I teach Undergraduate Perception and Psychobiology as well as Ageing: Mind, Brain and Behaviour. I also teach Psychology of Movement Performance: Theoretical Approaches in our MSc programme in Psychology of Performance Enhancement in Sport and Health
