People

Dr. Tamilia's team currently consists of one postdoc research fellow, one graduate student and two research collaborators:

Georgios Ntolkeras, MD - Research Fellow

Georgios_NtolkerasGeorgios Ntolkeras received his MD from University of Thessaly (Greece) in 2017. He is currently a postdoctoral research fellow at Harvard Medical and Boston Children's Hospital, where he conducts research and is part of the Clinical MEG team. He is also Associate personnel at Massachussetts General Hospital, Athinoula Martinos Center for Biomedical Engineering. His research is dedicated to the analysis of EEG and MEG data from children with epilepsy, with particular focus on the localization of interictal epilepsy patterns for the identification of the epileptogenic zone before surgery. He is also working on an endpoint enabling study of children and adults with Angelman Syndrome, where he contributes by analyzing polysomnography data to characterize both EEG sleep and epielptiform activity in this population.
 
assiaAssia Chericoni, BSc - Graduate Intern Student
Assia Chericoni is a graduate student in Biomedical Engineering at University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome (UCBM). She received her bachelor degree in Industrial Engineering in 2018 from University Campus Bio-Medico of Rome (UCBM). Research project: New methods to analyze sleep EEG in patients with epilepsy
Fun facts: She is a travel and adventure lover, and she likes sports especially running.
 

External Collaborators:

BillardelloRoberto Billardello, MSc

Roberto received his Master Degree in Biomedical Engineering from Campus Bio-Medico of Rome (UCBM)  in February 2021, after a 4-month internship in Dr. Tamilia's group at the FNNDSC. He is currently collaborating with our team while working at UCBM (in the CREO lab with Dr. Fabrizio Taffoni). The goal of the collaboration is to continue the work that Roberto started during his interniship entitled "Integrating EEG connectivity and excitability measures to localize the epileptogenic".
Fun facts: He is a music-lover and also a guitar player. zone
