Nefeli Tsigkri-De Smedt
Nefeli Tsigkri – De Smedt fraduated from the Department of Physics of the National & Kapodistrian University of Athens where she also took her doctorate. Her thesis title was “Synchronisation phenomena in coupled oscillator networks in neuron models”. She is currently working as a researcher at the National Center for Scientific Research (NCSR) “Demokritos” and the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (INN).
Her research interests are focused on the investigation of complex systems behaviour with applications in life and social sciences. She is particularly interested in analysing a system’s behaviour focusing on its dynamical evolution, self-organisation, pattern formation, collective behaviour and control. Tsigkri’s research interests are not limited to the theoretical understanding, but also include the practical relevance, as her dream is to contribute through research in the improvement of the quality and standards of life.
In particular, she is currently very interested in understanding and working towards the appropriate interventions to prevent, slow down or even reverse the undergoing modifications in the human brain and the neural system due to neurodegenerative diseases, strokes, normal aging or after suffering injuries. Additionally, she is interested in defining and establishing a truly interdisciplinary study that merges neuroscience with physics and hopefully together with engineers and doctors efficiently translates breakthroughs from bioengineering and neuroscience to viable clinic applications.
