Ioana is the Sr. Project Manager of WANDER, the newly started Wageningen Landscape Sensing Lab, the first immersive lab for data visualisation. WANDER seeks to inspire new ways for people to interact and understand data through visualisations.
Ioana’s passion for immersive technologies began during her master’s degree. She wrote an in-depth paper on "How can spatial computing environments improve the treatment routine in chronically ill patients?" Her drive has been always lowering the barrier between the virtual and real world. She worked at Dimenco, spin-off Philips, as Business Developer Director for the EMEA managing accounts such as Nvidia, Deutsche Telekom or VMware.
With WANDER, Ioana wants to develop a safe place to investigate, explore and co-create while making use of advanced techniques such as AR, SR, VR and other interactive displays to spread the word about current environmental challenges and their solutions based on WUR research findings.
