Short Bio

I am a computer vision researcher with a computer science background in image analysis and artificial intelligence, working with the ESRC Human Rights, Big Data and Technology (HRBDT) Project, housed at Essex University's Human Rights Centre. My PhD thesis forges, through the use of computer vision, the notion of visual recognition of human rights violations from images, whilst this area is addressed by strongly considering the constraints related to the usability and exibility of a real practice. Prior to my PhD, I completed two MSc degrees from University of Burgundy & Technological Education Institute of Crete. Before that, I received my BSc in Informatics Engineering from the Technological Education Institute (TEI) of Crete.

I’ve put together a timeline below with some milestones of my life. You can also read my Full CV.
