In 2018 she was recruited as Research Assistant in Digital Media / Libraries at APAC Labs/ STARC. With a background in Fine Arts (BA- first-class honours) from De Montfort University (UK) she continues her studies pursuing a master’s degree in Interaction Design.
At STARC Andriana is responsible for the digital curation of DIOPTRA: The Edmée Leventis Digital Library for Cypriot Culture and the management of digital assets through multiple stages of the Library’s digitization workflow. She conceptualises, conceives and plans the creation of a digital library structure focusing on usability and user engagement. In addition, she contributes her expertise in the development of the digital library platforms for the Andreas Pittas Art Characterization Laboratories.
Andriana is interested on the aspect of archeology, researching the theme of legend as it relates to cultural narratives by questioning the notions between visual and scientific perspectives. Her aim is to combine new and porous ways of digital technologies and specifically advanced imaging into digital art scenarios.
