Garyfallos gained an MSc in Biostatistics at the University of Glasgow and BSc in Mathematics at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.
Garyfallos' current domain of research is on Bayesian spatiotemporal models using exact point data and INLA. As part of his fellowship, he combines the aforementioned modelling framework with health economics to investigate the climate related respiratory disease burden in the UK.
