About Me

I am a 5th year Ph.D. candidate in the Sibley School of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Cornell University, advised by Prof. Ross Knepper. My current research interests lie in the areas of human-robot interaction, motion planning and artificial intelligence. My (ambitious) research goal is to enable robots to navigate crowded human environments seamlessly. I am specifically focusing on the development of mathematical models for multi-agent navigation and on the design of algorithms for navigation planning in multi-agent environments. To this end, I employ tools from topology, machine learning, path planning, control theory and nonlinear optimization.

In the past I have done research on robotic grasping and manipulation, working with Prof. Kostas J. Kyriakopoulos at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and on robotic/prosthetic hand design, as a member of the Openbionics Initiative . I hold an MS in Mechanical Engineering from Cornell (2017) and a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from NTUA (2013). More information about my research can be found in my Publications page.
