doulgeriZoe Doulgeri received a diploma in Electrical Engineering in 1980 from the Aristotle University, an MSc in Control Systems in 1982, an MSc in Social and Economic Studies in 1983 and a PhD in Mechanical Engineering in 1987 from Imperial College, London, UK. She started her carrier as a Lecturer in the University of Bristol before becoming a member of staff in the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where she is currently an associate professor. She is covering the academic field of Robotics and production scheduling and control in manufacturing systems. She has been the scientific leader in four (4) as well as she participated in ten (10) EC funded and national projects since 1990. She has also been a research proposal evaluator in several calls of the European Community frameworks FP5 and FP7 and of the GSRT of Greece. She has been an invited speaker in seminars organised by prestigious universities including MIT, UPENN and USF. Her current research interests are in the development of control laws for object grasping and manipulation by robot fingers, the control of robot contact tasks under kinematic uncertainties, the use of web telerobotics and virtual robotic environments in the teaching of robotics and the simulation of flexible manufacturing systems in web based collaborative environments. She is a reviewer in all the major scientific journals specialised in robotics and automation. She has published over thirty papers in scientific journals and tens of papers in the proceedings of international conferences.
