I am on the 2021/2022 academic job market.
I am a Postdoc in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington where I work with Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa in the Personal Robotics Lab.
I received my Ph.D. from Cornell University, working with Prof. Ross A. Knepper, and a Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens, working with Prof. Kostas J. Kyriakopoulos.
My interests lie at the intersection of robotics, human-robot interaction, and artificial intelligence. My goal is to enhance human quality of life through the safe and efficient deployment of robotic autonomy in real-world environments while accounting for the comfort of human users. I tend to do so by integrating models of human behavior into the design of planning, prediction, and control algorithms. To this end, I often draw tools from machine learning, algebraic topology, and user research. Some applications of interest include robot navigation in crowds, multirobot navigation, and robotic manipulation.
Here is my CV.
