In the Fall of 2023, I will be joining the University of Michigan as an Assistant Professor in the Robotics Department! Please apply to the Michigan Robotics PhD program if you are interested in working with me.
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 critical domains like manufacturing sites, warehouses, and hospitals. To this end, I develop mathematical models, algorithms, and systems to give robots the mobility, manipulation, and interaction capabilities to seamlessly integrate in the physical and social environment.
Here is my CV.
