I am a Robotics Research Engineer at Aeolus Robotics Inc. Aeolus Robotics is a service robotics startup, currently focused on providing assistive robots for elderly care facilities. I joined the startup in its early stages, and in it I have performed algorithm and test development, as well as hardware-software integration, for robot perception, grasping, motion and reactive planning. I have also led tech demos for investors, as well as knowledge transfer workshops for other developers on how to work with the robots. Additionally, I have performed technology scouting duties at international robotic conferences.

Previously I was a Marie Curie Early Stage Researcher at the Institute of Computer Science of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) in Heraklion, Greece. My research was part of the Retinal Vascular Modelling, Measurement and Diagnosis (REVAMMAD) project, focused on the detection and diagnosis of hypertension by automatic analysis of retinal images. This project led me to collaborate with diverse European institutions such as the Charite Medical University in Berlin, Germany, and to be visiting researcher at the Biomedical Imaging Lab of the University of Padova, Italy.

Before that, I worked as a Software Engineer in Scientific Games and as a Software Developer Engineer at Nokia Siemens Networks, both of them in Budapest, Hungary. My work experience also includes working at the Network Operation Center of Servicios Audiovisuales Overon, in Madrid, Spain, as well as more educational oriented positions at the Royal Institute of Technology (KTH) in Stockholm, Sweden and the Technical University of Madrid.

I hold a PhD in Computer Vision and Robotics from the University of Crete. My thesis was on Retinal Image Registration through 3D Eye Modelling and Pose Estimation, and you can see the presentation part of my PhD defense in here.

Previously, I studied a Master of Science in Systems, Control and Robotics from the Royal Institute of Technology, where I developed my thesis in 3D image segmentation using Kinect.I also hold a Bachelor Degree in Telecommunication Systems, majoring in Electronic Systems at the Technical University of Madrid (UPM), in Spain. I developed my bachelor thesis at the Blekinge Institute of Technology (BTH) in Karlskrona, Sweden.
