Associate Professor Eleni Giannoulatou

Eleni Giannoulatou graduated with a Masters of Computer Engineering and Informatics from the University of Patras, Greece in 2004. She next received her Master of Philosophy in Computational Biology from the University of Cambridge, UK and her Doctor of Philosophy in Bioinformatics from the University of Oxford, UK in 2011. She undertook postdoctoral work at the Wellcome Trust Centre for Human Genetics in Oxford as part of the Wellcome Trust Case Control Consortium and the Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine in Oxford investigating paternal-age-effect mutations in sperm using next-generation sequencing technologies. 

Associate Professor Giannoulatou joined the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in 2013 as a member of the Bioinformatics and Systems Medicine Laboratory and in 2015 she started an independent research group.

A/Prof Giannoulatou’s research focuses on the development and application of statistical methods to answer complex genetic questions using high-throughput genomics data. Using the latest next-generation sequencing technologies, her team develops quantitative approaches to identify disease-causing DNA mutations, and aims to understand the emergence of de novo mutations in the human genome.
