Panagiotis (Panos) Polygerinos

Panagiotis (Panos) Polygerinos is an Assistant Professor with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University. His research interests focus on the realization of tasks that are essential to the design, implementation and integration of novel soft robotic systems and mechatronic devices that have significant potential to improve patient care and human activity.

Prof. Polygerinos received a Bachelor's degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Technological Educational Institute of Crete, Greece in 2006, a M.S. degree in Mechatronics, and Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from King’s College London, London, U.K., in 2007 and 2011, respectively. As a Ph.D. candidate and under the supervision of Prof. K. Althoefer in the Centre for Robotics Research at King’s College London, Panagiotis designed, developed and evaluated novel miniature MRI compatible sensors for cardiac catheters. In 2012, he joined as a postdoctoral fellow with the Harvard Biodesign Lab (Prof. C. Walsh) and the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University, where he worked on soft robotic systems and wearable devices for people with upper extremity disabilities. He continued his research as a Wyss Postdoctoral Fellow of Technology Development at the Wyss Institute and collaborated with researchers, engineers, industrial and functional apparel designers, clinicians, and business professionals to develop new wearable assistive and medical technologies.
