About me

I have got my Phd on 2009 from the Department of Electrical and Computer Eng. of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (Greece) working on the force/position control of kinematically uncertain robotic systems under a grant from the State Scholarships Foundation of Greece. Subsequently, I have had a Fellowship from the Research Committee of AUTh for my postdoctoral research work on prescribed performance robot control. I have worked in CVAP/CAS as a postdoctoral researcher for conducting research that concerns control of robots for household applications and dual arm manipulation and I have recently promoted to Senior Resercher. I have been reviewer for top-rated journals and conferences in the fields of robotics and control systems. From Feb. 2014 I am treasuer of the IEEE Robotics Chapter in Sweden. I am currently running the project (projecktbidrag - Unga forskare) Cooperative Human Robot Object Manipulation via Adaptive learning control (CHROMA) which is funded by Swedish Reaseach Council (VR).

Research Interests

Robot control and manipulation, Force Control, Control of physical Human-Robot Interraction, Multi-agent robotic systems, Control of Nonlinear Systems
