Kalliopi Kyriakou is a postdoctoral researcher at the Institute for Risk Assessment Sciences (IRAS) at Utrecht University. Her main interest is deciphering the environmental factors that affect human’s perception of urban environments combining sensing technologies with other heterogeneous approaches.
Kalliopi studied Urban Planning Engineering and specialized in GIS and sensor data. She obtained her PhD from the Department of Civil Engineering of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Her dissertation involved the development of a GIS-based application that focuses on urban navigation, based on ‘near real-time’ predictions for travel times and vehicle emissions enhancing sustainable urban mobility. Her research project received funding and two awards from Siemens and the Greek State of Scholarship.
