PhD in Design, Loughborough University

Anna's PhD explores the way the design of prostheses could affect users' lives and society’s attitudes towards users, with respect to the level of their emotionally-driven design.

In 2014, Anna completed her undergraduate diploma in Athens (Greece), where she studied Interior Design, Decoration and Product Design (BSc). Her major project entitled “The passage of Architectural Design to Clothing and Furniture”, focused on furniture design. In 2015 she received a scholarship from Nottingham Trent University (UK), where she continued her studies on Furniture and Product Design (MA). Her thesis was “The design of prosthetic covers-The way that the design of the prosthetic covers can highlight the personality and the femininity of female amputees”.

Anna’s interest is in emotional design, research methods (both quantitative and qualitative methods), user-centred design, design for health, and design for social innovation.
