Throughout my academic career, I had the opportunity to initiate, develop and teach many graduate and undergraduate courses, as well as mentor students at all levels. I had been fully or partially lecturing at many institutes, e.g., University of Cyprus, University of Nicosia, Cyprus University of Technology, and Cyprus College, where I was responsible for the teaching of numerous courses, including

  • Character Animation,
  • Computer Graphics,
  • Research Methodologies in Computer Science
  • Technology Software for Video Games
  • Audio-visual Foundations,
  • Computer Networks,
  • Digital Logic Design,
  • Introduction to Information Technology,
  • Digital Cultural Heritage,
  • Spread-sheet Applications.

Also, I served as teaching assistant at the University of Cambridge, where I was responsible for the second year information engineering laboratories.
