I received the B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering from the Technical University of Dresden, Dresden, Germany, in 1993. I received from the National Technical University of Athens, Athens, Greece, the M.S. (2000) and Ph.D. (2004) degrees in the area of Automatic Control and Robotics respectively. From 1996 to 1998, I worked as a Software Analyst in INTRACOM S.A. From 2007 to 2013, I was a visiting Lecturer at the Mechanical Engineering Department, University of Thessaly, where I taught courses in the areas of Control Systems, and Robotics. Currently, I am an Assistant Professor with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Ioannina. My research interests include control of robotic mechanisms, microrobotics, haptic mechanisms, and medical robotic simulators.
