I am a Mechanical Engineer with focus on Industrial Design and Facilities Study. I have attended 3D design classes and have been involved in various projects at the Technical University of Crete. During my thesis, I designed and manufactured a 3D soft robotic gripper. My background studies have provided me with the skills to design objects with different geometries. I consider highly important to follow the latest trends in the development of novel design tools.
