I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in the Paul G. Allen School of Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington. I am part of the Personal Robotics Lab, where I work with Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa on the design of planning algorithms for multi-robot coordination, and human-robot collaboration, taylored to domains such as navigation and manipulation.
I received my M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from Cornell University, where I worked with Prof. Ross A. Knepper on the design of motion planning algorithms for socially competent robot navigation. Prior to that, I received a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, where I worked with Prof. Kostas J. Kyriakopoulos on the design of grasp planning algorithms for multifingered robot hands.
