Dr. Ioannis Karvelas

Ioannis was born and raised in the suburbs of Athens in Greece. He obtained a B.Sc. in Computer Science from Athens University of Economics and Business in 2016. During his studies, he was fascinated by Algorithms, Complexity Theory, and Game Theory. Ioannis’s curiosity about the human mind led him to Ireland to pursue a M.Sc. in Cognitive Science in University College Dublin (UCD), which he obtained in 2018. Drawn by computational approaches to exploring cognition, he focused on Decision Making, Cognitive Modelling, Artificial Intelligence, and User Experience. Ioannis proceeded as a Ph.D. student in Computer Science in UCD in 2018 under direct supervision of Dr. Brett Becker. He completed his Ph.D. in 2022, while his thesis focused on uncovering programming behaviour patterns when novice programmers utilize different compilation mechanisms within an IDE. During his Ph.D., Ioannis developed an interest in teaching Computer Science, and specifically programming and robotics. Ioannis’s research interests revolve around the intersection of Computer Programming Education, Human-Computer Interaction, and Microergonomics. His further interests include everything that is guitar-related, music (particularly when bpm > 180 and d > 3/4, where d := distortion), 3D miniature printing & painting, and motorcycles.

Ioannis is currently a Scientific Project Manager/Researcher in the R&D and Innovation Department at SingularLogic.
