Markos Kyritsis received a BSc (1st class Hons) in Computer Science, an MSc (Distinction) in Cognitive Neuroscience, and a PhD that addressed Spatial Knowledge Acquisition from Virtual Environments. Markos spent time working as a software developer and project manager, before migrating to academia in 2009. Since then he’s worked in small and large departments in Greece and the Middle East, before finally moving to BISA as a lecturer of informatics. Due to his interdisciplinary background, Markos has a fairly diverse publication history in areas such as Cognitive Science and Psychology, Human Computer Interaction, and Business.

Dr. Kyritsis is a member of several research teams spanning a fairly wide range of disciplines. He spends most of his time investigating and modelling human behaviour in Euclidean optimisation problems such as the Travelling Salesperson Problem, which in turn results in the creation of heuristics that can support firms engaged in pickup and delivery problems. Current research engagements involve: investigating spatial judgement tasks in optimisation problems; investigating entrepreneurial orientation in emerging markets; and evaluating inexpensive eye tracking devices for usability studies.
