I am a Postdoc in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington where I work with Prof. Siddhartha Srinivasa in the Personal Robotics Lab.
I hold M.S. and Ph.D. degrees from the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University, and a Diploma from the School of Mechanical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens.
My interests lie at the intersection of robotics, human-robot interaction, and artificial intelligence. I am excited about problems within the broad area of autonomous systems, with a particular emphasis on planning as applied to applications such as multiagent navigation, social robot navigation, and robotic manipulation. I frequently employ tools from motion planning, machine learning, and topology.
