Dr. Christos Papachristos
Welcome to the website of the Robotic Workers Lab!
I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering of the University of Nevada, Reno, and my research is focused on autonomous systems and field robotics including Unmanned Aerial Vehicles as well as Mobile Manipulation Systems, emphasizing on reliable robotic autonomy and resourceful physical interaction in the wild.
Before that I was a Research Assistant Professor and a Post-Doctoral Researcher with the Autonomous Robots Lab at the University of Nevada, Reno. I obtained my PhD in "Design, Control, and Autonomous Navigation of Tilt–Rotor Unmanned Aerial Vehicles" from the University of Patras, Greece, supervised by Prof. Anthony Tzes.
I am guided by a vision for ubiquitous autonomous robots that exhibit operational resilience in harsh settings by relying on multimodal perception, intelligent exploration, and advanced mobility, as well as advanced mission resourcefulness through mobile manipulation and cognizant physical interaction with their environment. Aligned with these goals, the Robotic Workers Lab deals with the development of novel systems and algorithms, while also field-testing the relevant robotic solutions.
