I am a researcher in human-computer interaction and social media services.
My research study aims to develop a framework for the successful design and development of social media services in businesses and entertainment. It is my life's dream to establish ground principles that will evolve the current understanding of the systems design field from an interdisciplinary perspective meant to cover all aspects of human-computer interaction.
My background covers many years of active involvement in online communities and web development & design, as well as a lifelong commitment to scientific learning, research, and teaching.
In my spare time I read and write fiction, develop and participate in online communities from which I draw my inspiration for my scientific studies, and I am a fan of video gaming of all genres.
I believe that as more and more minds that think alike connect to the online world and extend their lives from the real to the virtual, software designers and engineers will have the unique role that only ancient architects had when the great wonders of the world were being built. Creating today’s virtual wonder world built for collaboration, is not an easy task but nonetheless an interaction-efficient environment should still be a goal that future generations to come, may one day enjoy.
