teaching service robots

In Fall 2023, I will be joining the University of Michigan as an Assistant Professor in the Robotics Department!

Christoforos Mavrogiannis I am a Postdoc in the Paul Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington where I work with Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa in the Personal Robotics Lab.

Prior to that, I received my Ph.D. and M.S. degrees from Cornell University, and a Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens.

My interests lie at the intersection of robotics, human-robot interaction, and artificial intelligence. My goal is to build robots that are accepted as valuable partners in dynamic environments like manufacturing sites, warehouses, and hospitals.

Here is my CV.
