I am an Assistant Professor in Robotics Engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

I received my Ph.D. in Computer Science in 2023 at Rice University, working under the supervision of Dr. Lydia Kavraki and Dr. Anshumali Shrivastava. I am honored to have received an NSF-GRFP fellowship for my doctoral studies. I received my Diploma from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki as an Electrical and Computer Engineer in 2017.

My research interests lie in algorithmic robotics, focusing on integrating learning-based methods with classic robotic planning algorithms. The current research directions I am pursuing are in planning efficiency, planning under uncertainty, and planning from visual inputs.

More details can be found in my curriculum vitae.
