Aimilia “Emily” Papazoglou, Ph.D., ABPP-CN
Dr. Emily is a board certified clinical neuropsychologist, who is licensed to practice in the state of Georgia. She has had the privilege of training at some of the best institutions in the world. This includes degrees from the University of Oxford in England, Emory University here in Atlanta, and the Kennedy Krieger Institute/Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore.
Prior to starting her own practice, Dr. Emily worked at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Here, she specialized in working with children with neurological conditions and also started a program for monitoring the development of infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Dr. Emily chose to leave this position to develop a practice that allowed her to spend more time with, and to provide a broader array of services to, children and their families.
Dr. Emily has published her research in a number of scientific journals. Topics include diagnosing intellectual disability, measuring independent living skills in children with special needs, and assessing the long-term effects of radiation in children with cancer. She has also published on the cognitive strengths and weaknesses in children with epilepsy, brain tumors, and Sturge-Weber syndrome.
Here is some more specific information about her background:
- B.A. with honors and an M.A. in Psychology and Physiology from the University of Oxford in England
- M.A. and Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology & Behavioral Neuroscience from Georgia State University
