I finished my 5 year Diploma degree on September 2014 from the University of Patras, Greece in the department of Computer Engineering and Informatics, with a focus mainly on Computer Vision and Signal and Image Processing. I also did a research internship at INRIA with the Perception team, working with the problem of Shape Correspondence. I just started my 4 year MRes + MPhil + PhD course at UCL in the Translational Imaging Group and I will be working on Dr. Jason Warren’s Nexopathy project. Based on the hypothesis that every dementia disease displays a different temporal expansion pattern throughout the brain’s neural network, the project will attempt to prove whether this is true and if so, try to find the underlying cause behind this phenomenon. During the first stage of this research, we will attempt to come up with a computational model of the neural network with some of it’s properties which are deemed suitable and sufficient and then simulate each dementia disease and check whether their pattern of temporal expansion in the computer simulation agrees with the data from various imaging techniques. If successful, the results of this research can potentially help with the early and specific diagnosis of each dementia disease and with the further understanding of them.
If you first registered for your degree before 24th September 2007 you must decide whether you wish to opt for the award of a degree from UCL or the University of London and indicate your choice on your examination entry form. This decision cannot be changed once you have entered for the examination.

It is a difficult balance to strike. Dr Dario Milo, an outstanding South African lawyer and academic, in his UCL thesis, , argued that constitutional rights must shape the contours of modern libel law: freedom of speech, rights to reputation and dignity and the protection afforded to the public interest. He pointed to the clash of constitutional rights in the decision of the Canadian Supreme Court in the case, where the court ruled that a new defamation defence was required as a result of the constitutional protection of freedom of expression, the defence, as the court put it, of reasonable, responsible communication on matters of public interest. That is the concept which my noble friend Lord Lester has adopted in Clause 1. What was fair comment is now termed by my noble friend in Clause 2 as "honest opinion". That is an easily understood expression founded in the Dr Singh case, to which the noble Baroness, Lady McIntosh, referred. He was accused of libel by the British Chiropractic Association. The Court of Appeal stated in that case that judges would not rule on matters of scientific controversy, as it was not up to them to disentangle fact from opinion where scientific controversies were concerned. The court felt that the term "honest opinion" better reflected the realities of the issues.
