About me

As the Scientific Consultant of Aristotle Technologies, I am making sure that every tool we build is evidence-backed.

A lot of research is already done in the field of cognition. But there is still a lot of knowledge to gain. Especially research regarding cognitive training is minimally done. That is why I want to fill this knowledge gap and build the evidence and scientific background around our products. It is important to keep learning and innovating, in order to contribute to society. I am passionate to help people with cognitive disorders participate in daily activities, improving the school achievements of children and making athletes perform even better than they already do. I want to squeeze every last drop out of the cognitive abilities of people.

My brain itself, especially my prefrontal cortex, just finished or is nearly done maturating and rewiring. And I might not have 30 years of research experience. However, I do have the drive to keep developing myself and make use of that neuronal plasticity. Aristotle stimulates the acquisition of new skills and makes sure to put them into practice. All of this is done to support, challenge, and engage people in reaching their cognitive potential.

It is important to keep learning and innovating, in order to contribute to society.

  • Business Innovation Manager & Content Manager
  • Current Study: MSc Innovation Management – TU/e

During recent years, I became more aware that a vast majority of technological advancements are not put to their full use in the current society. Some reasons for this are the fear of change that a lot of people experience, the lack of knowledge and awareness of the newest applications and because the existing infrastructure cannot keep up with the speed of technological innovation. Therefore, my goal is to inform people about the newest possibilities of the technology of this time and the added value these advancements can have to their daily life by making seemingly complicated technologies easy to use and understand for everyone. This is also why I decided to join Aristotle. I believe that there is still a lot of ground to cover in cognitive training and that we as Aristotle can make a difference.

  • UX/UI Manager & Assistant Software Developer
  • Current Study: MSc Human-Technology Interaction – TU/e

I have a background in Automotive Engineering at Fontys and after completing the pre-master at the start of last year, I started the master. Due to the current global pandemic, the international semester had been cancelled. As an alternative, I knew I wanted to do something pro-active and work on a practical project instead of following more theoretical courses, and the TU/e Innovation Space project could offer just that. At Aristotle I can apply and broaden my knowledge of cognition, combined with a diverse multidisciplinary team there is a lot for me to learn! Together with Aristotle, I believe we can explore and create effective cognitive training tools and lift athletes to the next level both personally and professionally.

Antonios Mantzaris

  • Data Scientist & Software Developer
  • Current Study: MSc Data Science – EIT Digital Master School

I have the luck to study in two of the top universities in Europe, TU/e in Eindhoven and KTH in Stockholm and also get a minor in Entrepreneurship besides the Data Science track. I would describe myself as analytical, organizing and pragmatic. I joined Aristotle to get out of my comfort zone, develop my personal skills in social and technical aspects but also implement my knowledge attained from my studies so far in a real-life problem, in realistic conditions. I believe we can really make an impact with innovative ideas and tools but also highlight the advantages of cognitive training in football or in general.
