Samsung AI Center - New York

I am a Research Scientist at Samsung AI Center - New York, working on Robotics and AI. I am particularly interested in developing algorithms that make autonomous robots capable of interacting with the physical environment around them and reactively adapting to unexpected conditions.

I obtained a Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pennsylvania, advised by Prof. Daniel Koditschek at the GRASP Lab. I also hold a M.S.E. from the University of Pennsylvania and a Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), both in Mechanical Engineering.
