I am a PhD student in Museum Studies with a special interest in Visitor Studies. I am at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology, University of London, with Theano Moussouri and Jeremy Tanner as my supervisors and advisors.
I have been living in London for the last 3 years and I am planning of staying here for at least one more. I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. I had my BA in History and an MA in Contemporary learning environments and development of teaching material (especially focused on Literature, Language and History). I came across the term of Museum Studies while studying for my MA and decided to have my dissertation on the suggested guidelines for writing and mounting the interpretation text in museums. In addition, I explored one case study, the Athanasakeio Museum in Thessaly, Greece, for capturing visitors’ evaluations on the quality of its interpretation labels (Vemi & Christidou 2009).
I am a member of the Visitor Studies Group in UK as well as a member of the Visitor Studies Association (VSA).
I am actively participating in four informal groups based either at the Institute of Education, University of London or, at UCL’s Institute of Archaeology discussing about museums and culture as well as research methodology, especially video data analysis.
