Anna is a PhD student in the field of Computer Science. She has a BSc in Computer Science from Athens University of Economics and Business, and an MSc in Biostatistics from the University of Glasgow.
The aim of her PhD is to develop Machine Learning models in order to interrogate epilepsy- and ALS-specific datasets.
The first part of the project involves the analysis of data on around 100 patients with ALS and their primary caregivers, collected via interviews and through the Irish ALS Register.
The second part of the project concerns mining the National Epilepsy EPR in order to develop a profile of epilepsy patients in Ireland and to develop a Clinical Decision Support System which could provide insights into the progression of the disease, the response to treatment and the risk factors, and could support the development of an appropriate treatment plan
