About: I am an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Graphics Technology at Purdue University and director of the Virtual Reality Lab. My research revolves around virtual reality, computer graphics & animation, and human-computer interaction. In the past, I've been affiliated with the Visual Computing Lab at Dartmouth College as Postdoctoral Researcher and with the Department of Cultural Technology and Communication of the University of the Aegean as Research Assistant. I hold a Ph.D. in Informatics and an M.Sc. in Multimedia Applications and Virtual Environments both from the School of Engineering and Informatics of the University of Sussex, and a five-year integrated Masters in Audiovisual Science and Art from the Department of Audio & Visual Arts of Ionian University. For my research, I use computational tools to design virtual reality experiences, and aspects of cognitive and experimental psychology to understand the way humans interact in virtual environments. I am a member of IEEE and have been a member of the program committees of many conferences in the virtual reality, computer graphics, and human-computer interaction fields. Outside of the office, I enjoy playing tennis.
