Evangelos Oikonomou, MD, DPhil


Evangelos (Evan) Oikonomou is a clinical fellow in cardiology and a member of the ABIM Physician-Scientist Research Pathway at Yale School of Medicine. He is a native of Athens, Greece where he also completed his medical school training at the University of Athens. Following his graduation, Evangelos moved to the United Kingdom to pursue a Ph.D. (D.Phil.) degree at the Radcliffe Department of Medicine, University of Oxford. During the course of his project entitled "Non-invasive phenotyping of perivascular adipose tissue for cardiovascular disease diagnosis and risk stratification", he developed machine learning-based non-invasive imaging approaches to better characterize the role of perivascular inflammation in atherosclerosis. As a physician-scientist, Evangelos is interested in applying machine learning approaches using multidimensional data derived from non-invasive imaging to individualize cardiovascular disease diagnosis and treatment.
