teaching service robots

I am on the 2021/2022 academic job market.

Chris Mavrogiannis 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 long-term goal is to build robots that are accepted as valuable partners in dynamic environments like manufacturing sites, warehouses, and hospitals. To approach this vision, I develop algorithms and human-machine interfaces that balance safety and efficiency while accounting for human comfort. My research often draws insights from algebraic topology, and dynamical systems, tools from machine learning, artificial intelligence and control, and inspiration from social sciences. I deploy my systems on real robots and I evaluate them in extensive experiments with human subjects. My areas of interest include crowd navigation, multirobot navigation, and robotic manipulation.

Here is my CV.
