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. Her work on identification methods for space robots was published in the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) 2017. In this paper, a novel parameter estimation method is proposed based on the conservation of angular mometum of free-floating space robots. Since October 2016, she is a scholar of the Onassis Foundation.
