Christina Vasiliou is a Lecturer at Computer and Information Science Department at Northumbria University, Newcastle, and member of the NorSC and NORTH Labs. Before joining Northumbria in September 2018, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher at Digital Cultures @ Culture Lab Newcastle University working in collaboration with Northern Stage (Theatrical Productions Ltd) on incorporating digital technologies into the design, production and post-production activities associated with theatrical productions and engaging audience through new digital approaches.
Her research focus is on the area of human computer interaction, with a particular interest on elements of collaboration, communities and co-design. Her research interests further expand towards user experience and user behavior, development and evaluation of shared workspaces, and design of interactive technologies and spaces for new experiences with various applications (e.g. workspace, learning context, cultural heritage, or audience experience).
Christina holds a PhD in Human-Computer Interaction (Cyprus University of Technology), a MSc in Human-Centred Interactive Technologies (University of York, UK) and a BSc in Computer Science (University of Cyprus). In her doctoral work, she focused on understanding the complex interactions and interdependencies in an multi-device ecology from a distributed cognition perspective and produced a number of design implications for interaction and instructional designers.
During her PhD, she also worked as a research associate at the Cyprus Interaction Lab and teaching staff at the Cyprus University of Technology. She previously worked as a researcher and platform developer on the WomenPower project for the development of a platform to connect women mentors and mentees in the fields of academia, business, healthcare and technology. Prior to the WomenPower project, she worked as a researcher on the bilateral project “Creative multimodal information spaces for problem-based learning” between Cyprus and Slovenia. The project offers practical exemplars on revolutionizing problem based learning practice in higher education to engage learners in the process of problem solving.
