Research Fellow, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences
I studied Psychology at the University of Athens and then completed postgraduate studies in Applied Neuropsychology at the University of Nottingham. My PhD research looked at the effectiveness of different approaches to the delivery of memory rehabilitation interventions for people with acquired brain injury. As part of this work, I developed an outcome measure sensitive to the effects of memory rehabilitation for people with MS, TBI and Stroke. Since then I have been working at the Division of Rehabilitation and Ageing investigating the implementation of evidence-based rehabilitation interventions for stroke survivors.
I am an applied psychologist, with extensive research and teaching experience in neuropsychological rehabilitation, research methods and health services research. I carry out research that focuses on how stroke rehabilitation services are provided in the community so that they offer real benefits for stroke survivors and their families. I specialise in the use of mixed-methods and realist evaluation designs to study the process of implementing evidence into practice. I am interested in equality and accessibility considerations in the use of new neuro-rehabilitation technologies. I currently lead a Stroke Association funded project examining how stroke telerehabilitation works and for whom, with the view to informing recommendations for practice.

Research Fellow on the WISE: a realist evaluation study investigating the implementation and effectiveness of stroke Early Supported Discharge services across England. The aim is to identify what benefits there are for healthcare communities that have adopted ESD and to determine if realised benefits are the same as those suggested by randomised controlled trials.
Research Fellow on the REVIHR project: a multisite mixed-methods study looking at the implementation of evidence based in-patient stroke rehabilitation services. January 2014 to September 2017.
