Olga-Orsalia Christidi-Loumpasefski was born in Athens in February 1992. She received her Diploma with First-Class Honours from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics of University of Patras in September 2015. Her Diploma thesis concerned the dynamic analysis of a rotating machine and combined with the research of her professors based on rotor-bearing systems lubricated with electrorheological fluids resulted in two publications about Smart Rotating Machines. Since October 2015, she is a PhD Candidate in the Department of Mechanical Engineering of NTUA. Her current research focuses on dynamics and control of robotic systems in space. Since October 2016, she is a scholar of the Onassis Foundation.
