Vasiliki Mylonopoulou, Ph.D.
Vasiliki Mylonopoulou is a Marie Skłodowska Curie alumnus. She has worked on designing social features in technology supporting health behaviour change. Her Ph.D. thesis resulted in a design tool that can be used by practitioners in designing health and wellbeing technology that includes social aspects. She is passionate about designing and evaluating technology to support people's diverse needs. Vasiliki is interested in matters related to invisible conditions and specifically to mental health and developmental learning disorders in adulthood such as work integration, awareness, and policies. In 2019, Vasiliki received the Equality and Diversity award from the University of Oulu and since then she has initiated and organised the event: A Different Way of Working and Studying for three years.
Currently, she is a visiting scholar at the University of Oulu, Finland, and Jonkopning University, Sweden. She works as a lecturer/assistant professor at the University of Goteborg, Sweden, in the division of Human-Computer Interaction in the Applied IT department. She conducted her post-doc as part of the project Digital Seniors which focuses on creating design tools for designing technology for our older selves (casual technology users). She is part of the More Stamina app science team, which aims to support people experiencing multiple sclerosis to manage their energy.
