Panagiotis Artemiadis received the Diploma and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) Greece, in 2003 and 2009 respectively. From 2009 to 2011 he was a postdoctoral research associate with the Mechanical Engineering Department at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, at the Newman Laboratory for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation. He worked on the development and control of novel robotic devices for human motor rehabilitation. From 2004 to 2008 he was working on many research labs in Europe and US on the control of robotic devices and development of decoding algorithms for brain-machine interfaces. He joined ASU as Assistant Professor in August 2011.

Research Interests

Design, development and control of robotic devices that will help and collaborate with humans in every-day life. Research ranges from fundamental understanding of human motor control to novel designs and control architectures for robots that physically interact with humans. More specifically:

  •  Physical interaction of humans and robots in the context of every day life tasks including interception and cooperation
  •  Neuromuscular control of remotely operated robots
  •  Identification and modeling of the human arm dynamic characteristics
  •  Neuromuscular control of orthotic devices providing assistance and/or power augmentation
  •  Brain-Machine Interfaces and neural decoding
  •  Rehabilitation robotics
  •  Adaptive control of hybrid neuro-robotic platforms
