About me

I received the MEng degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the MSc degree in Automatic Control Systems and Robotics both from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2012 and 2014 respectively.

My Diploma Thesis involved the numerical research on the Sequential Quadratic Programming (SQP) optimization algorithm. My Master Thesis involved the mechanical design, the modeling and the nonlinear control of a novel aerial manipulator system.

Currently, I am 3rd year PhD Student at the Department of Automatic Control of KTH Royal Institute of Technology (Stockholm) under the guidance of Prof. Dimos Dimarogonas and Prof. Jana Tumova. My research interests include control of multi-robot systems, distributed Nonlinear Model Predictive Control and formal methods in control. I am currently working towards the framework of the European projects BUCOPHSYS and Co4Robots with main goal the design of collaborative control methodologies for multi-robot systems.

On 2nd June 2017, I successfully defended my Licentiate Thesis and awarded a Licentiate degree from KTH.
