Alexandra Tzanidou

I am an informatician by background and a curious person by nature. I become excited when a conversation regarding advances in science and technologies arises, although I maintain a sceptical perspective about appropriate uses.

My research interests evolve around digital inclusion and accessibility services; thus I endeavour to be involved with projects connected to such topics. Therefore, I decided to seize the opportunity and use my Ph.D. research to understand how technological advancements could deescalate the disability of modern societies to serve, include, and represent all the citizens within them.

During my MSc in Applied Informatics, I worked on making open-source internal navigation smartphone applications accessible to people with visual impairments. Right after that, my MRes in Digital Civics offered me the opportunity to understand how Participatory Geographical Information Systems can be utilised to enhance the inclusion of decision-making procedures in Urban Environments.
