research in service of meaningful practice



Hello and welcome! This site is a public aggregator and personal organizer for my research work and interests. I am senior researcher and teaching personel at the Virtual Reality, Internet Research and Learning Laboratory, Department of Psychology, Panteion University of Athens.
