Theodoros Varvadoukas received his B.Sc. in Informatics and Telecommunications from the National and Kapodestrian University of Athens in 2012. The research during his thesis was conducted at the National Center for Scientific Research (NCSR) Demokritos.

His work entitled “Detecting Human Patterns in Laser Range Data” resulted in a publication at the ECAI 12′, where a novel pattern recognition-based approach was proposed for the problem of human detection from a 2D laser sensor, avoiding the need for pre-defined motion models.

During his thesis he was involved in several research modules on the Roboskel robotic platform such as NLP, motion planning, SLAM, as well as in classic machine learning and pattern recognition problems. He is currently a research assistant at the Interactive Robots and Media Laboratory (IRML) of New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD) under the supervision of Dr. Nikolaos Mavridis. His research interests include: interactive robotics, machine learning & vision and cognitive systems.
