The talented novice is entitled by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of Patras University as an Electrical and Computer Engineer, a title that enables him to use his skills and knowledge in a variety of fields. However his specialization in Electronics and Computers in parallel with his diploma thesis titled Development and Evaluation of Collaborative Applications for mobile devices[2][3][4][5], which was conducted under the auspices of the Human - Computer Interaction Group[2] of UPatras, evinces his main focus on Human-Machine interaction, Software development, design and evaluation, Game Development and Educational Technology among others. His thesis led to a paper he co-authored titled "Content creation by end users for location-sensitive mobile educational games" [6] presented during the IS-EUD 2011 Workshop Involving End Users and Domain Experts in Design of Educational Games, 2011, Torre Canne, Italy [7] and to a presentation with title "Invisible cities: urban games mediated by mobile technologies"[8] which was presented during the "The Hybrid City Events", Athens 2011 [9].

While now an enthusiastic young engineer, Soteris has also completed a 25 month military compulsory service as a Reserves' Officer (INF), a stint during which he was training and managing people, while he was also responsible for ammunition and other military equipment . The experience and abilities acquired during this process, have equipped Soteris with the leadership skills needed in taking initiatives and managing people and critical situations.

A tyro - at the present moment of writing - at the diverse and inspiring environment of Cyprus Neuroscience and Technology Institute, Soteris's primary aim is to offer and expand his knowledge in technology - based areas and benefit from the dynamic milieu of the Organization.
