Miscellaneous Information

Anestis Mamplekos-Alexiou works in the area of robotics since 2013. He received his Diploma in Mechanical Engineering (ME) from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2016. During his Diploma Thesis, he focused on Upper-Limb Prostheses under the supervision of Prof. Evangelos Papadopoulos and Dr. Georgios Bertos. More specifically, he designed a teleoperation topology for controlling prosthetic limbs, with the use of micro-implants, aiming to the maintenance of amputee’s proprioceptive sense. Part of his work was presented in the IROS ’15 and EMBC ’15 conferences. Since September 2016 he is a PhD student at the University College London (UCL) as a member of Translational Imaging Group (TIG), under the supervision of Dr. Christos Bergeles and Prof. Lyndon da Cruz (Moorfields Eye Hospital). His current research elaborates on the design and control of a surgical robot for micro-precision ophthalmic interventions.
