Dr Kyriaki Giorgakoudi joined City, University of London in September 2016. She is a Research Fellow in Health Economic Evaluation and holds an honorary contract with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.
Kyriaki has overlapping academic interests in health economics, mathematical modelling, cancer and infectious diseases and has experience working in highly interdisciplinary environments.
PhD in Mathematical Modelling in Biology, The Pirbright Institute & Loughborough University, 2014
MSc in Operational Research with Risk, University of Edinburgh, 2009
BSc in Mathematics, Aristotle’s University of Thessaloniki, 2008
Research Fellow, City, University of London, 2016 – present
Research Associate, University of Cambridge, 2014 - 2016
Kyriaki has expertise in health economic evaluation and mathematical models of host-pathogen interaction.
During her postdoctoral work at the University of Cambridge, she worked at the interface between epidemiology and health economics, investigating the potential cost-effectiveness of maternal immunisation against Group B Streptococcus (GBS) disease in the UK. Kyriaki was invited to present this work to the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation in October 2016, in preparation for the potential future availability of a GBS vaccine.
Prior to this she explored within-host dynamics of foot-and-mouth disease virus (FMDV) infection through a combination of mathematical models and experimental work. Her live virus work was carried out at the SAPO 4 laboratories of the Pirbirght Institute.
Currently, Kyriaki works on economic evaluation alongside a variety of cancer clinical trials in collaboration with The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust.
