img_20160524_123342817I am a technology-enhanced learning and community engagement researcher and practitioner. My interests evolve around the design of engaging user-centered technologies and community engagement for enhanced interaction and knowledge exchange. I am also interested in citizen science, mobile learning and inclusive education.

I completed a BA (Hons) in Education Science and Primary Education, University of Athens (Distinction), an MSc in e-learning at the University of Piraeus, Greece (with Distinction) and a Ph.D. degree in Educational Technology, at the Institute of Educational Technology, The Open University, UK.

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher with openTEL at the Institute of Educational Technology in the Open University, UK. I am participating in a number of research and teaching-related projects as collaborating investigator and I have a hand in finalising the learning material in the master module H819: The critical researcher: educational technology in practice (part of the MA in Open and Distance Learning; MAODE). I am also contributing to European and UK National funding bids for work in openTEL, and I am organising workshops that maintain communication and collaboration between openTEL researchers and students.
