Christos Papadelis, PhD
Christos Papadelis is Instructor in Neurology at Harvard Medical School, Research Associate at Children’s Hospital Boston, and Manager of BabyMEG laboratory. He received the diploma in Electrical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1998, and his MSc and PhD in Medical Informatics, in 2001 and 2005 respectively, from the same institution. During his graduate studies, he worked on a number of research projects funded from the European Union, and the Greek Secretariat for Research and Technology. After his PhD graduation, he worked as Post-Doc Researcher in the Laboratory of Human Brain Dynamics at Brain Science Institute (BSI) of RIKEN, Japan, from June 2005 to August 2008, and in the Center for Mind/Brain Sciences (CIMeC) at University of Trento, Italy, from September 2008 to August 2011.
His main research goal is to understand how different sensory and motor processes of the cerebral cortex are integrated to achieve goal-directed behaviours using distributed synchronized neural networks of oscillatory activity. He is currently working on understanding how large-scale cortical networks are formed during human development.
Dr. Papadelis is an Associate Editor for the Journal of Information Technology Research (JITR), Guest Editor for Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, and reviewer for more than ten peer-reviewed journals such as Neuroimage, Brain Research, Journal of Sleep Research, and others. He has published more than 20 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and figures of his work have been selected as covers for multiple scientific journals.
Dr. Papadelis is married to Yulia Kotelnikova, and has a daughter.
