I work in the area of robotics and automation, mechatronics, product design and project management since 2003, with specialization in space robotics and space technology. I received my Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (ME), M.Sc. in Automation Systems and Ph.D in ME, all from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), in 2005, 2007 and 2015 respectively. Since the beginning of my career I have been working as a Research Assistant, and now as a Research Associate, at the Control Systems Laboratory (CSL) of the NTUA. My research work is mainly focused on On Orbit Servicing (OOS) and space automation. I am a member of the maintenance and operation team of the CSL space emulator, the design and technology of which has been presented in various international conferences. I was a member of the CSL-NTUA team that was one of the six shortlisted ESA YES3 Mission Proposals and have participated in various research projects of European Space Agency (ESA) with CSL since 2008. I also assist in the preparation of proposals for ESA calls, EU calls or other funding schemes, and in the management of the corresponding projects. Since 2015, I have co-founded an enterpreunerial project named "Mecharmonics". Mecharmonics is currently participating in business accelerators and discussions for future projects. I have published various research papers in international journal publications and conferences. I am a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece and of the Hellenic Association of Mechanical and Electrical Engineers. I am also member in IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers), ASME (American Society of Mechanical Engineers), AIAA (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics) and HEL.A.S. (Hellenic Astronomical Society).
