Georgia Angelopoulou studied Psychology at the School of Philosophy, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. She continued her studies by conducting an MSc in Special and Inclusive Education at the Department of Psychology, University College London, Institute of Education, and an MSc in Clinical Neuropsychology at the Faculty of Medicine, National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, School of Medicine/Montreal Neurological Institute, McGill University. She is currently a PhD candidate at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, 1st Department of Neurology, under the supervision of Prof. Constantin Potagas. Her doctoral research focuses on brain-language relationships in stroke survivors with aphasia. She is also interested in language and cognitive decline in neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson Disease, Alzheimer Disease and Frontotemporal Dementia. Part of her research has been presented in scientific conferences and published in peer-reviewed journals. Georgia will join the Aphasia Research Laboratory at Boston University under the supervision of Prof Kiran, aiming to broaden her knowledge in analyzing brain imaging data and investigating possible relations between brain lesions and language deficits. Her dream is to expand imaging research in Greece in an attempt to interpret neural correlations of language functions.
