Chrystalleni Loizidou (PhD) initially came on board as Research Associate with the VSMS Lab in 2010-2011, researching vernacular tourist photography, memory, and photosharing. During that time she organised THATCamp Cyprus 2011 (The Humanities and Technology Camp) kicking off a long-standing interest in the Digital Humanities. Her background is in Philosophy and Art History (BA, University College London), communication design (MA Design Studies, Central Saint Martins), and Cultural Studies (PhD). Her doctoral thesis at the London Consortium (Birkbeck, University of London) focused on Cyprus, employing an art-historical method to approach questions of memory and governance. Her research and curatorial work has tended to reflect on the commons and their management.
