Hello, I am Thanasis Mastrogeorgiou
Computer Scientist, M.Sc.

I am a PhD candidate at the Control Systems Lab (CSL) of the School of Mechanical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). I received my 4-year BSc in Applied Informatics at the University of Macedonia in Thessaloniki (Greece) in 2008, and my MSc in Artificial Intelligence at the University of Edinburgh (UK) in 2009, following my MSc in Automation at the National Technical University of Athens (Greece), in 2013.
After working as a systems maintenance technician (2010) in the private sector, for the last 3 years I have been working as a research assistant at the CSL (NTUA) and as a freelance software developer. Throughout these years, I have developed a solid background in the Robot Operating System (ROS) using C++, embedded systems (TI TiVa, AM437x Industrial Development Kit, PC104 embedded computers, etc) and multibody dynamics simulation software.
I am currently undertaking my PhD thesis at the legged lab of the CSL, under the supervision of Professor Evangelos G. Papadopoulos. Μy current research is focused on perception, motion planning and control for biomimetic legged robots in order to handle rough terrains and slopes.

  • PhD Candidate
    National Technical University of Athens, Athens (Greece)
    2016 - Present


  • Interdepartmental Program of Postgraduate Studies in Automation
    National Technical University of Athens, Athens (Greece)
    2011 - 2013

    Dissertation Title: Evaluation of the Webots robot simulation environment during quadruped robot motions, and comparison with alternative software.
    Project Achievement: The project's goal was to build a Webots model of the lab's (NTUA CSL) Quadruped Robot and using Matlab programmed controllers perform a number of tests on various terrains in order to evaluate the software and the controllers.

  • MSc in Artificial Intelligence
    University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh (United Kingdom)
    2008 - 2009

    Dissertation Title: Learning Bipedal Locomotion Using Finite State Machines
    Project Achievement: Building a framework that performs motion processing on demonstrated data, and reveals the information necessary, in order to “rig” a motion on an FSM representation.

  • Bsc (4-year) in Applied Informatics
    University of Macedonia, Thessaloniki (Greece)
    2003 - 2008

    Dissertation Title: Autonomous Robot Navigation Within The Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio Simulation Environmen
    Project Achievement: Analysing and evaluating the MRDS platform by setting up various robot navigation scenarios. Another important outcome of this project was a manual for the MRDS (in Greek) which can later be used by the university students on future projects.
