Personal profile

Research profile

As a production engineer and computer vision researcher, I am interested in developing reliable robotic solutions that enable safe human-robot interaction based on computer vision. I work within the Robotics & Automation Group in the Department of Materials and Production of Aalborg University in Denmark and my daily activities cover research and teaching mainly in the area of Artificial Intelligence for Robotics & Manufacturing. My particular focus is driven by the challenges of designing reliable robot systems that can be intuitive to use, safe around humans and bring Intelligent and Collaborative Robotics closer to real-world applications. A recent research interest I find particularly intriguing is the investigation of robot behaviour in industrial and social contexts and how robot and AI ethics are explored and included in that behaviour.

I have been involved in multiple research projects in the areas described above for more than 10 years. The projects were mostly funded by the European Commission and the FP6, FP7 and H2020 frameworks, as well as the Danish and Greek states. Additionally, I have (co-)authored more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific papers published in journals, conference proceedings and books.

Moreover, I have (co-)organized conferences and workshops in the area of Mobile Robotics, Robot Vision, Human-Robot Interaction and Robot Ethics. I regularly serve in the editorial board of Emerald's Industrial Robot, as guest editor in various journals and books on robotics and HRI, associate editor for major robotics conferences including IEEE's IROS and ICRA, and as a regular reviewer for the major journals and conferences in robotics and robot vision. 

I am a member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Director of the euRobotics Topic Group on Standardisation, Trustee and Management Officer of an international charity on robotics science (CLAWAR Association Ltd.) and member of the advisory board, technical advisor and co-founder of two start-ups in the area of robotics and computer vision. 

I have also been fortunate to be involved in various teaching activities as course coordinator, instructor, supervisor, examiner and censor on undergraduate and graduate level. I have gained ample experience with problem-based learning as my teaching activities are mainly focused on the Bachelor & Master programme on Robotics and Master programme on Manufacturing Technology at Aalborg University.
