About me

I am a post-doctoral researcher and lecturer working on Mobile Eye Tracking and HCI with focus on Wayfinding assistance at the Chair of Geoinformation Engineering at ETH Zurich, Switzerland.

I was born in the city of Patras, Greece in 1985. In 2009 I received my Bachelor (B.Sc.) and in 2011 my Master (M.Sc.) in Computer Science from Saarland University in Saarbrücken, Germany. I conducted my theses at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI). In 2015 I successfully defended my dissertation at ETH Zurich.

Research Interests (for a short overview you can read this position paper)

My research interests focus on mobile gaze based assistance of spatio-temporal decisions during wayfinding. This includes the performance of user studies in real urban and virtual environments for the exploration of processes such as self-localization and orientation, the development of novel mobile gaze based wayfinding assistance concepts and their evaluation in realistic scenarios.
