About Me

Hello there! My name is Alexandros (Alex) and I’m currently a Ph.D. student at Northwestern’s Computer Science and Learning Science program. I work with professor Mike Horn at the TIDAL Lab and my research is focused on HCI and interaction design education, as well as the design of (sometimes playful) learning environments.

I have an undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Philosophy from Boston University and I hold a master’s degree in Integrated Design and Media from New York University. Before coming to Northwestern to pursue my Ph.D., I held an adjunct faculty position at NYU and I was part of the New York City startup scene where my co-founders and I worked to bring the latest immersive technologies to tabletop gaming.

In this portfolio you’ll find more information about my work as a researcher at Northwestern and about my prior work as a creative technologist. If you see something that you’d like to talk about, please don’t hesitate to reach out and connect with me. I’d love to hear from you!
