About me

Hello, I’m Dimitris. I’m from Greece and have been studying in the UK for three years. I hold a BEng in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Southampton. I learned about the CDT during the second year of my undergraduate degree. I felt drawn to it because of its solid industrial focus and potential to significantly impact the world. 

In the past, I have worked on projects involving robotics and sensing, the most notable being the CanSat USA competition. I’m also deeply interested in IoT applications and have tinkered with smart devices at the hobbyist level. During my PhD at the University of Cambridge, I’m eager to explore the potential use of biosensors as a non-invasive prognostic tool in agricultural applications. My personal aspiration is to demonstrate a proof-of-concept wireless sensing system. I am equally excited to expose myself to the field of robotics and autonomous systems through the MSc at Lincoln. 

On a more personal and upbeat note, I enjoy cooking and constantly seek to improve my culinary skills. I like to stay active through long walks, hikes, and the gym. When I’m not doing much, I usually watch movies/series/anime or listen to podcasts – especially on long commutes.
