Biography

Before starting my PhD, I obtained a bachelor’s degree in Education (University of Patra, Greece), a bachelor’s degree in Psychology (University of Crete, Greece), and a research master’s degree in Social Psychology (Vrije University Amsterdam). My master thesis focused on the relationship between voice characteristics, personality and communication styles.

PhD project

In February 2019 I started my PhD project on Automatic Personality Assessment under the supervision of Prof. dr. Reinout de Vries. The goal of the project is to develop a software that will be used in selection interviews to decode one’s non-verbal behavior (e.g., facial expressions), content of speech, and voice characteristics to create an online personality profile. The project is a collaboration between LTP Business Psychologists and VU University Amsterdam.
