Academic Social Networks:

V.C. Moulianitis is a graduate of the Mechanical Engineer and Aeronautics Dept of the University of Patras (1996). He has completed doctoral studies (2004) at the same university in the field of mechatronics design. Since 2018, he is serving as Assistant Professor of the Department of Product and Systems Engineering of the University of the Aegean (Design of mechatronic product and systems).

His research activity extends to the areas of mechatronic design robotics, focused in kinematics and robotic arm optimization. He has published more than 65 papers on the above topics in international scientific journals, book chapters and international and national scientific conferences.

His published work has attracted more than 100 citations (h-index: 6). He has a rich teaching experience - at undergraduate and postgraduate level - teaching courses on mechatronics, mechanisms design and analysis, vehicle design, design for manufacturing and more. He has also been a member of the Scientific Committee of the program of many scientific conferences in the field of robotics.
