I received the Diploma in electrical and computer engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2008 and the Ph.D. in automatic control from ETH Zurich, Switzerland, in November 2012, under the supervision of Prof. John Lygeros.
From December 2012 till December 2013 I was a post-doctoral researcher at ETH Zurich working with Prof. John Lygeros, while from January 2014 till January 2015 I was a post-doctoral researcher in the Department of Industrial Engineering and Operations Research at UC Berkeley, working with Prof. Shmuel Oren. From February 2015 till February 2016 I was a post-doctoral researcher at the Department of Electronics, Information and Bioengineering, at Politecnico di Milano, working with Prof. Maria Prandini.
In March 2016, I joined the Control Group, Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford, where I am currently an Associate Professor. I am also a Fellow in AI & Machine Learning at Reuben College, and a Lecturer at Worcester College.
Since 2020 I am an Associate Editor for Automatica. Since 2016 I am an Associate Editor, Conference Editorial Board: IEEE CSS, EUCA and IFAC. In 2019, 2020 and 2021 I received a Teaching Excellence Award, Department of Engineering Science, University of Oxford (upon nomination of undergraduate students). In 2013 I received the ETH Medal for my PhD thesis.
