I come from an Architecture and Urban Design background (MSc with distinction at University of Edinburgh) and I have been involved with the tech industry through industry-based training in UX and Software Development.
In the past I worked as a Designer & Research Assistant for a start up in Edinburgh for projects related with architectural & 3d design, digital media and design informatics. In my last job as a Digital Transformation Analyst based at Cosmote Telecom Innovation Lab, I have been exposed to Design Thinking for Innovation in large institutions, Prototyping, UI/UX and development for AR/VR for health and safety training.
I am interested in experimenting with design and technology in various contexts, lately focusing on spatial UX, spatial computing, 3d visualization and VR simulation.
My research interest in HBI and smart environments is what brought me in touch with my supervisor David Kirk. I find research and design for health and well-being in contemporary home & workspace interesting, also design for seamless automation in smart environments and the role of user in an era where agency is shifted.
