About Me

Feb 08, 1983

I was born in Marousi of Attika (Athens) and brought up in a suburb of Athens, Agios Dimitrios. I had been living in beautiful Xanthi, where I worked and studied for almost 10 years. Currently, I have returned to my hometown where I work as a Free lancer R&D Engineer. My general interests and hobbies, apart from researching on Robotics, include cinema, theatre, travelling, politics, roll play gaming, playing table games, book reading, and hanging out with friends.

I love sketching and drawing, especially medieval and fantasy subjects, such as fairies, castles, epic warriors, wizards and dragons.

My main research interests are robotics and computer vision.
