Zisos Mitros is a mechanical engineer working on robotics. Currently, he is a senior Ph.D. Student in the Wellcome / EPSRC Centre for Interventional and Surgical of University College London (UCL) under the supervision of Dr. Christos Bergeles and Prof. Lyndon da Cruz. Moreover, he is a member of the Robotics and Vision in Medicine (RViM) Lab at King’s College London (KCL).

Zisos also interned at University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Dr. Mohsen Khadem. During his internship, he designed, developed and modelled a Continuum Robot for Distal Lung Sampling in Mechanically Ventilated Patients in Critical Care.

His research interests include surgical robotics for microsurgery, mechanical design and manufacture, and dynamic systems modeling and control.

Before that, Zisos was a Research Assistant at the Control Systems Laboratory (CSL) in Mechanical Engineering Dept. of NTUA under the supervision of Prof. Evangelos Papadopoulos.
