I am currently a PhD Candidate in the field of Robotics Vision, with the European Space Agency (ESA) through the Networking/Partnering Initiative (NPI), at the Democritus University of Thrace. I am mostly honoured to be guided by my Advisor, professor Antonios Gasteratos.
At the time of writing, I work at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in the Automation and Robotics Laboratory, Noordwijk, Netherlands. Here, I am involved in several internal lab projects as well as conducting experiments in the context of my PhD research, under the supervision of my ESA TEC Tutor, Head of Automation and Robotics Section TEC-MMA, Gianfranco Visentin.
Since 2009 I am a proud member of the Group of Robotics and Cognitive Systems where along with my colleagues, I have been employed in some very interesting Research Projects. The highlight of my previous project experience is the ESA funded ''SPARTAN" activity, where we developed robot vision algorithms for Space Exploratory Rovers.
