Research Interests

Ioannis is interested in modeling and inference in biological systems. His research combines methods from Mathematical Biology and Data Analysis to characterize complex mechanisms arising in Biophysics and Biomedicine. In his work, Ioannis develops large scale computational models and uses deterministic and stochastic simulations to analyze their behavior. Within a truly interdisciplinary context, Ioannis' research lies between Mathematics, Statistics, Computing and Bioengineering.
