Research interests

From a neuroscientific point of view, I am interested in affective and personality neurosciences, as well as in disorders that mainly affect the connectome. Based on these I am also interested in the applied aspect of neuroscience, and more specificialy with low cost devices. Some examples are the affective and personality computing, where I am trying to classify emotions and personality types using biosignals. From a methodological perspective, my main research interests are based mostly on human connectivity, and graph theoretical modeling of human's brain, as well as the modulation introduced in brain networks either by affective and/or cognitive stimuli or under pathological circumstances.
