His areas of activity in the Lab focus on robotic architecture, transformable intelligent environments, automation systems, design methods and digital design tools in virtual reality environments. He has contributed in 8 publications in scientific conferences and magazines. Following his graduate thesis in the field of ‘Robot swarms in architectural construction and design and the creation of a digital-real communication platform’, he continues to develop methods that can be applied both in cultural spaces and in extreme environments. Moreover, he is building 6-axis robotic arms as a synthetic tool for architects, through virtual reality. At the same time, he is key staff at the Maker Space laboratory, created within the framework of the "Designed for Better Learning" program by the City of Athens, implemented by TUC TIE Lab with the coordination of Athens Partnership and the exclusive donation of the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
