Dr. Evangelos Paraskevopoulos completed his bachelor and master studies in the psychology department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (A.U.TH.). At the same time, he studied music theory and received a music diploma in Harmony, Counterpoint and Fugue. He then moved in Muenster, Germany to perform his PhD in cognitive neurosciences and Magnetoencephalography in the Institute for Biomagnetism and Biosignalanalysis with Prof. Dr. Christo Pantev as supervisor. He completed his PhD in 2013 receiving a Summa Cum Laude. In 2011 he received an award in the young neuroscientist poster competition “NeuroVisionen 8“ by the NeuroNRW - Ministry of Innovation, Science and Research of the State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany and a postdoctoral research fellowship from A.U.TH. (Excellence). In 2017 he received a post-doctoral research fellowship from the Foundation of State Fellowships of Greece (IKY) and in 2018 a post-doc research grant from ELIDEK. His research interests focus on cortical plasticity, music perception (disorders) and multisensory integration. He currently is a postdoctoral research associate in the laboratory of medical physics in AUTH, and a part time lecturer in the Psychology department of the City College, an international faculty of the University of Sheffield. He has 20 published original research papers in international refereed journals, one in the scientific annals of the Department of Psychology, of A.U.TH., 3 book chapters and more than 35 contributions in international conferences with posters and talks.
