From a young age, I have been deeply passionate about computer science and its potential to positively impact society. This led me to pursue a degree in software engineering at the university level. After completing my studies, I joined Novitech Group, a leading company focused on optimizing work procedures in the manufacturing, surveying, and building industries. During my time at Novitech, I had the opportunity to work on several high-profile projects, including COGITO, which provided me with valuable technical skills and enhanced my ability to collaborate effectively within a team environment.
About the organizations
Hypertech is a Greek SME founded in 1997. The Energy Labs Unit of Hypertech was established in 2012 with the aim to design and prototype digital solutions that facilitate the energy transition of buildings. The solutions comprise an integrated hardware and software stack which includes: i) a building instrumentation solution to extract real-time data streams about the status and operation of building technical systems and appliances as well as occupancy and usage patterns by humans; ii) a data space infrastructure populated by these data streams that allows data exchange with service providers while preserving data control and sovereignty; iii) a building energy management system to improve energy efficiency, autonomy and enable the active integration of buildings to the energy utility networks and support the decarbonisation of the built environment and energy sectors; and iv) openBIM-based digital tools for building renovation evaluation and planning as well as building operations monitoring and optimisation.
University of Edinburgh
The University of Edinburgh is one of the world’s top research-intensive universities, ranked 20th in the world by the 2020 QS World University Rankings, 6th best university in Europe by the U.S. News’ Best Global Universities Ranking, and 7th best in Europe by the Times Higher Education Ranking. It has 83% of our research activity classified as world leading or internationally excellent in the 2014 UK Research Excellence Framework (REF). The CyberBuild Lab in the School of Engineering has extensive combined experience in Construction Management, Reality Capture (Laser Scanning, Photogrammetry, etc.), Building Information Modelling (BIM), Scan-to-BIM, Computer Science/Vision, Visualisation, Building Surveying/ Conservation, Survey protocols, Philosophical and technical fabric repair. These core skills have been demonstrated through several previous and on-going research projects disseminated through various publications, both academic and professional, as well as public and professional engagement events.
BOC is a software development house and a consultant in the field of IT-supported management approaches. The main business field and its origin is Business Process Management with the toolkit ADONIS®. Today BOC offers commercial modelling tools for strategy management (ADOscore®), business process management (ADONIS®), logistics (ADOlog®), IT-infrastructure and IT-architecture management (ADOit®) and a governance, risk and compliance (GRC®) suite. Recently the research group of BOC created an Innovation Laboratory with the purpose to innovate the BOC group internally as well as to offer this innovation services to customers. This Innovation Laboratory consists of creative, evaluation and engineering spaces and a robots-based proof of concept area, where the behaviour of models can be demonstrated with physical objects.
