Dr. Raptis joined the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering at North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University as an Assistant Professor in Fall 2019. He is the director of the Autonomous Robotic Systems Laboratory (ARSL). Dr. Raptis received his Dipl-Ing. in Electrical and Computer Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece and his Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering from The Ohio State University in 2003 and 2006, respectively. In 2010 he received his Ph.D. degree in the department of Electrical Engineering at the University of South Florida. Before joining NC A&T State University, Dr. Raptis held a Postdoctoral Fellow position at Georgia Institute of Technology, with a joint appointment in ECE and AE, and an Assistant Professor position in Mechanical Engineering at University of Massachusetts Lowell.

Research Interests
