I am a hybrid artist, researcher and lecturer. Throughout my career, I have worked in the creative industries, as freelance creative professional and in academia, teaching in both undergraduate and postgraduate level on the areas of Film, Visual Arts, Graphic Design and Animation. Additionally, I am an affiliate member of national and international organisations for the creative industries and the new media arts.
My interdisciplinary background and studies in Visual Arts and Health Sciences has influenced my creative practice and peer-reviewed research, which for more than ten years has centred in the field of arts and the brain, combining creativity, technology and science. I hold a Ph.D from the Glasgow School of Art, while my expertise lies in the use of innovative technologies, with a focus on Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs) and Eye-Gaze Tracking systems (EGTS), Interactive and Digital Media and Moving Image technologies. I have received grants and awards from prestigious sources, like the NEON Organization, Glasgow School of Art Global Excellence Initiative Fund, Connecting Cities Urban Media Lab as part of the European project ‘Connecting Cities: Participatory City 2014’, MyndPlay, the Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands in Athens, The Hellenic-Dutch Association of Commerce and Industry (He.D.A.) and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of the Hellenic Republic. In this frame, I have collaborated with esteemed organisations including the Centre for Contemporary Arts Glasgow, Dundee Contemporary Arts, Northern Video Art Network (Finland, Norway, Greece, Hong Kong), iMAL (Brussels) and Fournos Center for Digital Culture (Athens).
My creative work and research has been presented and published since 2004 in Europe, Asia, North and South America including: solo and group art exhibitions, performances, art fairs, exhibitions in museums and centres for the new media and digital culture, video-art and film festivals, international peer-reviewed conferences and invited talks and guest lectures.
