Ms Ifigeneia Mavragani is a PhD student in the Biophysics/DNA Damage Laboratory (Physics Department, School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences, NTUA) under the supervision of Assist. Prof. Alexandros Georgakilas. She recieved her diploma in Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences by the NTUA in 2014 and her MSc in Medical Physics & Radiation Physics by the Medical School of University of Athens (UOA) in 2016. She is mainly focused on the investigation of ionizing radiation-induced systemic effects, using techniques such as the γ-H2AX assay and constant field gel electrophoresis, as well as Monte Carlo DNA damage simulations.
