About Dr Dimitris Mylonas

Dr Dimitris Mylonas is Lecturer in Computer Science and Course Leader of the Data Science minor at New College of the Humanities. Dimitris holds a PhD from the Department of Computer Science, University College London funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). He received a MSc in Digital Colour Imaging from London College of Communication, University of the Arts London and completed successfully a MRes in Media and Arts Technology at Queen Mary University of London again with the support of an EPSRC scholarship. He held research posts in the School of Psychology, University of Liverpool, in the Wellcome Laboratory of Neurobiology, University College London and in the Centre for Cognition, Computation and Culture, Goldsmiths College, University of London. Dimitri’s research focuses on colour communication between humans and machines within and across different languages. This ongoing research is endorsed by the International Colour Association through its study group on the Language of Colour, and has attracted notable media attention, including articles in the Economist, New Scientist, United Press International, Lifo and the Metro newspaper. Prior joining NCH, Dimitris taught computing courses to under- and post- graduates at University College London and Goldsmiths College and online to employees of the ING Group.
