Background and activities
I have a diploma in Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics (2008) from the University of Patras (UoP), Greece. Between 2008-2009 I worked as researcher at the Stochastic Mechanical Systems and Automation Laboratory at UoP.
In August 2009 I started my PhD at the Centre for Ships and Ocean Structures (CeSOS) at NTNU, under the supervision of Thor I. Fossen. I defended my thesis on April 24, 2014.
Between March 2014 - February 2015 I worked as postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS), more specifically in the NextGenIMR project with Ingrid Schjølberg as my advisor.
Since February 2015 I have been seconded from NTNU to the Research Council of Norway to work at the JPI Oceans Secretariat in Brussels. I am mostly responsible for Strategic Area 2 on Technology and Sensor Developments, including technology developments in deep sea mining and observation systems (Strategic Areas 1 and 6 respectively).
