Georgios Papanikolaou

PhD Student

Contact Details:

Georgios Papanikolaou is a PhD researcher in Applied Mathematics (School of Mathematical Sciences) and the INFANT Research Centre at UCC. His research combines modern mathematical techniques, such as machine learning, system & control theory and tipping point theory, with real seizure data to develop new mathematical models of seizures in the neonatal brain. The ultimate goal is to categorize different seizure types, foresee and identify the onset of seizures, and develop strategies to reduce seizures in premature born babies.

This research will provide novel insight into seizure dynamics, potential links with the developing cardiovascular system and circadian rhythm, and will produce new methods to study and monitor neonatal EEG data.
