Ioulia is a multidisciplinary designer and artistic researcher. Her interests lie in the encounters across diverse fields, exploring unexpected connections between science, artistic practices,  human tradition, and the hybrid knowledges that they produce. Currently, she is a doctoral fellow in Art Science in Ghent University, where her research focuses on the transmission of embodied knowledge through immersive and interactive technologies. Her unique background enables her to transcend traditional disciplines, and she frequently engages in collaborations with both artists and scientists. Using data, computer graphics and scientific concepts, her work aims to reveal the imperceptible forces that shape our lives, forging a connection with the more-than-human world.
