Anna-Maria is a Ph.D. student at the Laboratory of Informatics and Robotics in Education and Society of the University of Macedonia, in the field of Human-Robot Interaction . She received her B.Sc. degree in Psychology from the University of Crete and her M.Sc. in Computational Neuroscience and Cognitive Robotics from the University of Birmingham. She is experienced in designing and implementing original research with socially assistive robots, carrying out human experiments in various environments (i.e., typical, and special educational, museum etc). She has worked in the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory, Birmingham, UK, developing autonomous systems for robots, in CN-CR, center for neuroscience and robotics, Birmingham, UK, working on Model Comparison on perceptual decision making and also in the Telecommunication System Institute, Technical University of Crete at Horizon funded projects in the human-robot interaction domain. From 2014 to 2017 she was a research associate in the Transformable Intelligent Environment Laboratory (TIE Lab), Technical University of Crete, Chania, Greece, while betweem 2015-2017 she was the Coordinator of the Prsychospatial Department of TIE Lab, a multidisciplinary group of undergraduate students, designing and carrying out cognitive experiments on the effects of environmental conditions on perception, attention, and mood, utilizing machine learning processes through neural networks. She has worked in the STIMEY Project, conducting research on the effects of the prototype SAR STIMEY on students’ attitudes, CultureID Project, collaborating with engineers to design a robot-prototype for museum interaction, and in Designed for Better Learning project as Member of the assessment committee. Her Ph.D. is funded by national competitive scholarship program (ESPA). Her research is getting published in high quality conferences and journals, and she has been for multiple times an invited speaker in international workshops, conferences, and seasonal schools talking about Human- Robot Interaction, Cyber Physical Systems, and how to incorporate psychological methodology and principles in robotics research.
