Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests span the multidisciplinary field of cultural informatics/digital humanities with a particular interest on the deployment of advanced digital methods to support various cultural heritage management processes (study, research, preservation, communication, education and enjoyment of heritage assets). My research includes working on digital documentation of tangible heritage collections and intangible material knowledge; virtual representations to contextualise museum artefacts; interactive 3D games to engage online heritage audiences; digital fabrication (3D printing) to enhance the interpretation of heritage collections; use of advanced digital technologies in conjunction with creative methods; UX and evaluation of digital applications supporting heritage research and GLAM audience engagement.

Scholarly biography

I hold a degree in History and Archaeology from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece); a MSc in Cultural Informatics and Communication from the University of the Aegean (Greece); and a PhD from the School of Architecture, Technology and Engineering of the University of Brighton in the interdisciplinary field of digital humanities, focusing on the deployment of advanced digital methods to support a variety of cultural heritage management processes. I am based at the Digitisation Lab of the Centre for Secure, Intelligent and Usable Systems and I am also a member of the Centre for Digital Media Cultures of the University of Brighton.

My professional and academic experience include field archaeology work in Greece, research roles in academia, support posts in museums and heritage institutions and project management roles as a cultural informatics professional for the integration of IT in the cultural heritage domain. During my PhD and after its completion I have delivered talks, CPDs and seminars about digital documentation of heritage collections, data visualisation, digital fabrication, engagement of diverse heritage audiences through technology and dissemination of cultural heritage information by deploying advanced digital methods.

My PhD, held in collaboration with the Royal Pavilion & Museums Trust, examined digitally fabricated (3D printed) replicas of museum artefacts as interpretative “devices” and proposed a framework for their integration and evaluation within experiences for different audience groups. Over the last couple of years, I have worked in various research projects, investigating creative and technology facilitated methods to improve children’s wellbeing; the impact of Covid-19 on heritage institutions; the use of 3D printed replicas and digital 3D games to enhance museum interpretation; digital technologies for documenting and accessing intangible heritage knowledge, skills and practices of heritage craft; and the requirements for complex visual data infrastructure to support the Arts and Humanities research community in the UK.
