I am a postdoctoral researcher in the Computer Vision and Robotics Laboratory (CVRL) at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH) working with Professor Antonis Argyros. I earned my B.Sc. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the University of Thessaly in 2005 and my M.Sc. in Computer Science from Brown University in 2008. I obtained my Ph.D. from Brown University and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tuebingen, Germany, under the supervision of Professor Michael Black in 2014.
I am interested in modelling articulated objects in 3D with special interest in the human body and hands. So far, my work has focused on data-driven approaches for modeling 3D surface geometry. Applications range from 3D shape matching to animating subtle non-rigid deformations of the human body e.g. due to breathing.
