About me

I received the MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering and the MSc degree in Automatic Control Systems and Robotics both from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2010 and 2012 respectively. In 2018, I received my PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece.

From January 2019 to June 2020, I held a postdoctoral position at the Decision and Control Systems, School of Electrical Engineering, KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, Sweden where I was collaborating with Prof. Dimos Dimarogonas.

From June 2020 to May 2021 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher at the Chair of Information-oriented Control, TUM Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Technical University of Munich, Germany collaborating with Prof. Sandra Hirche.

Since May 2021, I am an assistant professor at the Department of Electronic Systems, The Technical Faculty of IT and Design, Aalborg University, Denmark.

Research Interest

My research interests include nonlinear control of autonomous robotic systems (mobile, underwater, and aerial), sensor based motion planning, marine robotics, visual servoing, cooperative manipulation, multi-agent control systems, robot navigation and task planning, unmanned vehicles, hybrid systems, networked control, formal verification, control of hybrid systems, control of multiple robotic systems such as free-flying manipulators.
