Short Bio:

I received the Informatics and Telecommunications Degree and the Doctorate degree in Information Technology from the National University of Athens, Greece, in 2005 and 2009 respectively. Since June 2016, I am "Maître de Conférences" (Associate professor) at IMT Atlantique Bretagne/Pays de la Loire (formerly known as École Nationale Supérieure de Télécommunications de Bretagne), Department of Informatics.

My main research interests lie in the fields of Cognitive Robotics and Computer Vision. During my doctorate research, I contributed two international patents in the fields of content-based 3D model retrieval. In 2012, I was as the UGV pilot of the team that was dispatched to the earthquake-hit area of Emilia Romana in Italy, which was the pioneering mission of a human-robot team for Urban Search & Rescue in Europe. I have (co)authored several articles in top-tier journals and conferences in the domains of computer vision and robotics and taught various related courses from undergraduate to post-graduate level in different countries and institutions across Europe. I further hold the Cambridge Proficiency of English Language, Diploma of French Language of 1st degree, the teaching qualification of Section 61 for the French Superior Education as well as the State diploma of Music Harmony and Degree in Organ.
