At the undergraduate level, she completed her Bachelor’s degree at the University of Thessaly in Computer Science and Biomedical Informatics. Afterwards, she studied for her M.Sc. in Bioinformatics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. In 2013, she took up a joint position at Systems Biology Ireland (SBI) in University College Dublin and Teagasc (the Agriculture and Food Development Authority in Ireland) as a Walsh Fellow, a position jointly supervised by Prof. Walter Kolch (SBI) and Associate Prof. David Lynn (Teagasc).
In 2014, Theodosia relocated with her supervisor (David Lynn) to SAHMRI in Adelaide, Australia. At SAHMRI, Theodosia works as a research assistant in bioinformatics on the PRIMES project, a large-scale European Commission FP7 funded project to investigate dynamic molecular interaction networks in cancer. She is also working on completing Ph.D. her thesis for SBI/Teagasc. Her work involves developing novel network biology algorithms and applications to investigate information flow in cancer networks.
