Dr. Dimitris Tsakiris is a researcher with ICS-FORTH. He received his Ph.D. from the Dept. of Electrical Eng., Univ. of Maryland, USA. While at Maryland, he was affiliated with the Inst. for Systems Research and served as the manager of the Intelligent Servosystems Lab. His Ph.D. involved the study of parallel robotic manipulators, of nonholonomic robotic systems and of undulatory robotic locomotors, with emphasis on mechanics and nonlinear control. Subsequently, he was a Marie Curie/TMR postdoctoral fellow with the mobile and underwater robotics group, INRIA, France, where he worked on visual servoing. His research interests lie in the areas of sensor-based robot navigation, nonlinear control and geometric mechanics.
