teaching service robots

Christoforos MavrogiannisI am an Assistant Professor of Robotics at the University of Michigan, where I direct the Fluent Robotics Lab.

Prior to that, I was a research associate in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington, working with Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa. 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.
