Personal profile

Research interests

The aim of my doctoral research is to investigate the design, production and introduction of 3D digitally fabricated replicas of artefacts in cultural heritage experiences to address expectations and needs of distinctive audience groups.

The cultural heritage sector has been used over the last few decades as a test field for 3D technologies, such as 3d imaging and 3d printing. Until recently, the main focus of researchers and professionals has been on developing more accurate and effective techniques and to serve processes related to the documentation, preservation and dissemination of cultural heritage. This project emphasises the communication aspect of cultural heritage management by investigating how the attributes of digitally fabricated artefacts work within experiential frameworks, how these physical representations are perceived by audiences and how museum professionals, educators and designers can manipulate them to effectively communicate cultural heritage information.

The project is carried out with the collaboration of the Royal Pavilion and Museums, Brighton and Hove.

Scholarly biography

I hold a degree in History and Archaeology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and a MSc in Cultural Informatics and Communication from the University of the Aegean, Greece.

I have worked as an archaeologist in Greece, as a researcher in academia and as a cultural informatics professional for the implementation of IT in cultural heritage organisations. I have taught courses on museums and cultural heritage management and delivered seminars and talks about the deployment of 3D technologies in heritage documentation and interpretation.

In January 2016, I enrolled on a PhD in collaboration with the Royal Pavilion and Museums, Brighton and Hove. I am currently investigating how digitally fabricated replicas of artefacts can be incorporated in museum experiences for different audience groups.
