School of Computing Science and Engineering

Dr Theo Theodoridis



I received the BE degree in automation engineering from the Technological Educational Institute of Piraeus, Greece, the MSc degree in embedded systems and robotics, and the PhD degree in intelligent crime-recognition robots from the University of Essex, UK. I worked as a full time postdoctoral senior research officer (EPSRC grand), at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), focusing on multimodal human-robot interfaces and visual guidance as well as pattern recognition control methods. Currently I am working as a lecturer in robotics and embedded systems in the school of Computing, Science & Engineering at the University of Salford.  I am a reviewer and author of several leading learning journals of the field.
