Rigina Skeva

Rigina is an IT graduate and, later on, software engineer. She's gained valuable experience in back and front end development as well as several computer science fields. However, Virtual Reality (VR) immediately captured her interest and imagination. Apart from being a highly immersive and entertaining tool in the games industry, VR can constitute an innovative tool for psychology, too. Having the opportunity as a current PhD student to specialise on VR medical applications for psychological rehabilitation is more than a research project to her.
