Academic Social Networks:

Sofia Kyratzi is a lecturer (2014) of Geometric Modeling and Computer Aided Design at the Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering of the University of the Aegean. She received her PhD (2007) degree in Computer Graphics and Geometric Modeling from the Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering of the University of the Aegean. She also holds an MSc (2002) in Medical Informatics and a BSc (2000) in Mathematics from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

She participates in many courses of the department that are related to Computer Aided Design and parametric 3D modeling, Computer Graphics, Engineering Drawing and Detail Design. From 2002 she has been involved in many research projects of the Department of Product and Systems Design Engineering. Her research interests include geometric and solid modeling, computer graphics, computer aided sketching, image understanding, computer mathematics, and computer vision.


Research Interests:

  • 3D parametric modeling of solids and surfaces
  • Construction of valid sketches and reconstruction of a 3D solid model from a given single sketch
  • Sketch Interpretation and Sketch Understanding (algorithmic and mathematical modules)
  • Parametric description objects and interior or exterior areas
  • Design Intent: parametric design on the basis of design intent and recognition of the design intent in sketches
