Biography

I am a Research Assistant/PhD student at the Department of Computing @ Imperial College, under the supervision of Prof Maja Pantic. I got my BSc (Ptychion) at the Department of Informatics & Telecommunications @ the University of Athens and my MSc in Advanced Computing (Research Stream) @ Imperial College. I am mostly interested in spontaneous continuous and dimensional (but also discrete or quantised) multimodal emotion recognition. In the affective computing area, fields such as psychology, cognitive sciences and computer science are highly amalgamated, in a way as art and science were during the early Renaissance.
