Dr. Dimitrios Papageorgiou joins CSRL as a faculty member.

Dimitrios Papageorgiou graduated the Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) in 2013 and received his PhD from the same department in 2019. His PhD is related to the control of collaborative robots for safe operation and assisted kinesthetic guidance utilizing dynamical systems and constraint enforcement, while his PhD supervisor was Prof. Zoe Doulgeri (ECE-AUTH). Since July 2022, Dimitrios Papageorgiou is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering of the Hellenic Mediterranean University (HMU) in the following scientific field: “Control systems and automation focusing on robotic applications”. His research interests are in the area of robot control, physical human-robot interaction, virtual fixtures and dynamical system based motion generation. He has participated in 4 European and 2 national research projects, which are related to robot control in industry, robot-assisted surgery and agricultural robotics, while he has also received 2 scholarships for his doctoral studies and post-doctoral research respectively. He has co-authored 24 papers that are published in scientific journals (such as “IEEE Transaction on Robotics” and “Robotics and Computer integrated Manufacturing”) and international conferences (such as IEEE ICRA, IROS and CDC) in the field of Robotics and Automatic Control. He is a member of IEEE (Robotics and Automation Society and Control Systems Society) and the Technical Chamber of Greece.
