George joined the University of Plymouth, UK, in 2022 as a Lecturer in Creative Computing. After studying classical Piano and Music Theory at the Orfio Conservatory in Athens, he completed his studies (BSc) in Physics at the University of Ioannina and an MSc in Physics and Technological Applications at the National Technical University of Athens, Greece. In 2016, he received a PhD in Digital Media from the University of Porto, Portugal, and subsequently conducted his post-doctoral research project on music-related body motion at the RITMO Centre for Interdisciplinary Studies in Rhythm, Time and Motion of the University of Olso, Norway. Prior to his music-related research, he carried out experimental research in the field of Biophysics at the National Centre for Scientific Research ‘Demokritos’, Greece. His research interfaces the disciplines of music technology and music cognition. Driven by a passion for musical rhythm, George investigates the perception of ‘groove’ and music-related body motion and develops algorithms and tools for music generation and analysis.
