Dr Nikolaos Ersotelos

Dr. Nikolaos Th. Ersotelos is a research fellow with 8 years of working experience in both academia and industry. He received his Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Brunel University in 2010 and his MSc (Distinction) in Media Production and Distribution from Lancaster University.

Since he joined the CVDA lab of the University of Bedfordshire in 2013 he has participated in 6 EU funded projects (DrInventor, CHIC, Carre, MyHealthAvatar, MyLifeHub, GPSME).

In 2016, he was involved in a project under a MoD (Ministry of Defense) contract.

From 2011 to 2012 he participated in the EU project “Splotch” - an open source astrophysical cosmological simulation - as a researcher of Portsmouth University.

From 2012 to 2014 he was a researcher at the University of Athens, specialising in the facial expression recognition research field.

His research interests include web design/development, image processing and data visualisation.
