Angeliki Pollatou, Ph.D., MA

Research Postdoctoral Fellow

Angeliki Pollatou, Ph.D., MA, joined the Developing Brain Institute (DBI) at Children’s National in July 2022 as a Research Postdoctoral Fellow in prenatal-neonatal brain clinical research. Angeliki's primary focus at DBI will be studying how early experiences shape brain development and linking this data to future health outcomes. Prior to joining DBI, she was a postdoctoral fellow at Columbia University Irving Medical Center focusing on multidisciplinary research in early neuroimaging. She was awarded a doctorate in Physics from Stony Brook University for developing computational tools for rodent image analyses and a master’s degree in Physics, also from Stony Brook, for multi-wavelength astronomy research.
