Gerry Markopoulos is a senior lecturer in psychology. His primary interest is in the cognitive psychology of memory with a focus on the relationship between encoding and retrieval processes, and the role of environmental context. He co-leads the Biological and Cognitive Psychology module at Level 5 (PS5007-20) and the Advanced Cognitive and Biological Psychology module at Level 6 (PS6028-20). He contributes teaching to other modules including Introduction to Psychology (PS4001-40) and the Dissertation module (PS6002-40). Previously, Gerry has conducted neuroimaging research at the Otto-von-Guericke University in Germany, and taught psychology at a number of higher education institutions in Greece. Gerry has published articles at academic journals, authored book chapters, and presented his research at several national and international conferences.
