Combining scientific and operational experience, Dionysis enjoys discovering simple answers to lingering problems. His background includes engineering, architecture, computer science, and conceptual modeling. He holds a diploma from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece and M.Sc. and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, USA.

During his 2009-2018 term as an inspector of public administration, he identified the need for simple solutions against fundamental faults impeding Greece’s recovery.

In democracy, the government and the people have common interest. Yet, unceased civic engagement is a must because governance does not autocorrect. Collaboration, instead of hostility, achieves more toward common goals. He encourages people to include governance in their aspirations.

Dionysis pursues systemic improvement, rather than individual cases. He designs and builds IT tools to facilitate the solution of root problems. He is inspired by his father, Rigas Rigopoulos (1914-2012), a technically minded human loving social scientist and WWII fighter.

With Antonis Psarakis, they have developed the anti-COVID initiative GnoriZO, launched at Citizen TALES Commons.
