Postdoctoral Research Associate, Assistant Lab Director

Heracleia Lab @ Department of Computer Science and Engineering

University of Texas at Arlington

I am a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Texas at Arlington under the advisement of Professor Dr. Fillia Makedon. I am also assistant director of Heracleia Lab.

In 2019, I received my Ph.D. in Engineering from the University of Bremen under the supervision of Professor Dr.-Eng. Axel Gräser. The title of my Ph.D. Thesis is: "Robot learning from human demonstrations for human-robot synergy". Before that, I received my M.Eng. degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering and my M.Sc. degree in Automation Systems both from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2012 and 2014, respectively.

My primary research interests are in the fields of Robot Learning from Human Demonstrations, Human-Robot Interaction and Assistive Robotics with a special focus on Enhancing Human Performance.
