Panagiotis (Panos) is a Lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering , Bangor University, UK, and a member of the Visualization, Modelling and Graphics (VMG) reserch group. He is also the Director of Student Engagement. Panos completed his PhD at the Vision and Synthetic Environments Laboratory, of the University of Essex in 2006. He also holds a MEng on Electronic Systems Engineering, from the University of Essex (2000).

Previously, Panos was a Lecturer in the Department of Computer Science, Faculty of Science and Engineering of the University of Chester, UK (2015/16), a post-doctoral researcher in the School of Computer Science, Bangor University, UK (2011-2015), and a software developer with Intracom Telecom S.A., Greece (2007-2011).



Panos' research interests lie in the domain of human-computer interaction and include:

  • mixed/augmented and virtual reality
  • information visualization
  • visual analytics
  • wearable computing

He is particularly interested in potential synergies between these fields within different flavours of human-data interaction, such as beyond-the-desktop visualization and immersive analytics.

The above research topics can be explored in a variety of applied domains, including Ocean Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Nuclear Sciences, Cultural Heritage, Learning and Education, and Computer Games, 


In addition to his research and teaching activities, Panos actively contributes to the the scientific community, reviewing papers for journals and international conferences, and serving on various program committees of scientific events.
