Full Profile

Dr. Ioannis Doumanis joined UCLan in May 2018 where he currently holds a lecturer position. He is a member of the School of Physical Sciences and Computing, where he teaches HCI and programming modules. His primary interests are in HCI and user experience (UX) empirical research and design.  He has worked extensively on Web, Web apps, mobile, Serious Games/Gamification and Virtual Reality (including FP7 and H2020 R&I projects). Before joining UCLAN, he successfully completed the POINT project (funded by H2020) where he explored the User Quality of Experience (QoE) of conventional and emerging multimedia services (e.g., online digital video and Virtual Reality Storytelling). As part of the same project, he designed and empirically tested one of the first mobile games designed for smart cities.
