Dr. Ladas completed her PhD in 2013, at SEERC, which was awarded by the University of Sheffield. Her topic was the phenomenon of bilingualism and its effects on attention processes throughout the lifespan. She was a research assistant and a scientific coordinator in the Long Lasting Memories project (European Commission) , as well as a researcher in other projects funded by the European Commission (e.g. DISCOVER, USEFIL). She has also collaborated with the Spanish University of Almeria, as  a researcher. Currently, she is a research associate of SEERC, where she has previously worked on the ELIEMENTAL project, also funded by the EC. She is also a research member of the ReA2ch research group of the Psychology Department of Sheffield International Faculty City CollegeMoreover, she has worked with children with autism and learning difficulties on a daily basis for three years. She also delivers lectures at City College, the Psychology Department. She is a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) of the British Psychological Society (BPS), a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK) as well as a Member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Student Chapter.

Teaching

Introduction to Psychology, Topics in Psychology, Sensation and Perception, Philosophy of Science and Ethics, Interdisciplinary Psychology.

Research Interests

The cognitive effects of bilingualism, phenomena that influence attention (e.g. dementia, religion, bilingualism, drug use, dopamine), the neurochemistry and early diagnosis of dementia through dopamine function, cognitive aging, drug addiction (risk factors, rehabilitation, relapse factors, the role of dopamine), Eye Blink Rates as a measure of dopamine function.
