BioVasiliki N. Ikonomidou earned the Diploma in Engineering (MSc) degree and the PhD in Electrical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, in 1997 and 2002 respectively. Her PhD thesis focused on the development of excitation techniques for magnetic resonance tagging. In May 2003 she joined the intramural program of the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) of the NIH (Bethesda, MD), as a Visiting Fellow in the Laboratory for Functional and Molecular Imaging, Advanced MRI Section, working under Dr Jeff Duyn in the development of high-contrast anatomical MRI techniques. In May 2006, she joined the Neuroimmunology Branch of NINDS, where she worked on brain imaging, using MRI and PET, in patients with Multiple Sclerosis. Since August 2009, she has been with George Mason University, where she is an Assistant Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and the MRI Physicist of the Krasnow Institute for Advanced Study. Her research interests are in the fields of technical development for MRI, development of multispectral and fusion image processing techniques, and the detection of early stages of white matter neurodegeneration. Dr. Ikonomidou has co-authored 19 papers in peer-reviewed journals, and is a member of ISMRM and IEEE.
