Charalampos (Haris) Matsantonis is originally from Greece but has been living in Brighton for the past 4 years. Previously his study has focused on the areas of mathematics, obtaining a PgC in Mathematics from the Open University and an MSc in Applied Mathematics from Herriot-Watt University. He has already taken part in a series of research activities in the fields of machine learning and sustainability. Haris would like to investigate the cross-section between mathematics and robotics and devise new computational tools to table challenging problems in robotic manipulation. He is looking forward to applying his knowledge to the areas of robot vision and human-robot interaction, with particular focus on geometric algebra. Haris will be studying his PhD at the University of Cambridge. In his spare time, Haris likes to read books about astrophysics and play basketball (probably not at the same time!).
