I am a PhD candidate at Stanford University, Civil and Environmental Engineering (CEE) Department, Sustainable Design and Construction (SDC) Program. I am conducting research under the supervision of Martin Fischer (CEE, Center for Integrated Facility Engineering - CIFE) and Silvio Savarese (Computer Science Department, Stanford Vision and Leanring Lab - SVL).
I am interested in interdisciplinary research between Civil Engineering and Machine Perception. My area of focus is on automated semantic and operational understanding of buildings throughout their life cycle using visual data.
Prior to enrolling in PhD program, I received a MEng in Architecture and Digital Design (University of Tokyo-2011), a MSc in Computer Science (Ionian University-2013),and a Diploma in Architectural Engineering (National Technical University of Athens-2009). I have also worked as an architect and consultant for both private and public sector.
Spring 2018: Started a new course on AI applications in the AEC industry.
Apr 2017: Awarded a 2017 Google PhD Fellowship in Machine Perception.
Jan 2017: The Joint 2D-3D-Semantic (2D-3D-S) Dataset is out! More than 70K images and 6 mutually registered modalities in 2D & 3D.
Dec 13th, 2016: Poster at the SCIEN Affiliates Meeting 2016 on Tuesday, December 13th.
Nov 18th, 2016: 1-min spotilight and poster at the Bay Area Robotics Symposium 2016 (BARS) on Friday, November 18th.
Oct 17th, 2016: I was invited to “The Modern Architect” radio show on FM 90.1 KZSU hosted by Tom Dioro to have a general discussion tailored for a broader audience about building parsing, what I’m working on, my thoughts, its potential and the AEC/FM industry in general.
Aug 2016: The Stanford Large-Scale Indoor Spaces 3D Dataset is now released. Visit here to download.
Jul 11th, 2016: Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory's Outreach Summer program 2016 (SAILORS) is starting this Monday July 11th and we are expecting 24 bright students that will make our halls lively and buzzing for two full weeks.
Jun 29th, 2016: Our work on 3D Semantic Parsing of Large-Scale Indoor Spaces was featured in Stanford News: Stanford researchers automate process for acquiring detailed building information.
