Zisos Mitros

PhD candidate

University College London

I am a mechanical engineer working on robotics. Currently, I’m a Ph.D. candidate 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, I’m a member of the Robotics and Vision in Medicine (RViM) Lab at King’s College London (KCL).

I have also interned at University of Edinburgh under the supervision of Dr. Mohsen Khadem (Surgical and Interventional Robotics Group). During my internship, I designed, developed and modelled a Continuum Robot for Distal Lung Sampling in Mechanically Ventilated Patients in Critical Care.

My research interests include robotics, mechanical design and manufacture, dynamic systems modeling and control and systems integration.

Before that, I was a Research Assistant at the Control Systems Laboratory (CSL) in Mechanical Engineering Dept. of NTUA under the supervision of Prof. Evangelos Papadopoulos working on projects funded by European Space Agency.
