Christina Kazantzidou is a Lecturer in the School of Electrical Engineering and Robotics at Queensland University of Technology (QUT). Christina received a Bachelor’s Degree in Mathematics, a Master’s Degree in Theoretical Informatics and Systems & Control Theory, and a PhD in Mathematics, all from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. Her specialisation is in Systems and Control Theory. From 2007 to 2013, she offered teaching assistance at both undergraduate and postgraduate level in the School of Mathematics at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Christina moved to Australia in March 2014 and worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Curtin University, where she conducted research in geometric control theory and descriptor systems. After completing her 2-year appointment at Curtin, Christina moved to Brisbane in March 2016 to work as a Research Associate within the Robotics and Autonomous Systems Discipline in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at QUT. During her employment at QUT, she conducted research in controller design and tuning for marine systems, geometric control theory and descriptor systems. Since June 2017, Christina has been working on a QUT project supported by the Australian Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group, Maritime Platform Dynamics & Control. Christina was also a Tutor for the Computer Labs in EGH445 – Modern Control in 2017 and 2018, and the unit coordinator and lecturer in MXB201 – Advanced Linear Algebra in 2019.
