I am Associate Professor of Marine Technology. I teach Principles of Naval Architecture and Ship Dynamics. In my research I combine principles of ship and safety science for the prediction of sea loads and the analysis of the performance of floating assets operating in extreme conditions. I am also interested in the de-risking emerging technologies (e.g. big data analytics, nuclear technology, autonomy, etc.) for use in the design and operations of safe and sustainable ships. I am European Engineer, Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (FRINA, UK) and of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (FSNAME, USA). I have been a member of the International Ships and Offshore Structures Congress since 2006, serving as member in various committees and chair of committee I.2 on Loads as well as memeber of the International Towing Tank Conference since 2021. Part of my editorial duties involve Associate Editorship of the IMechE Proceedings Part M : Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment (ISSN:14750902, Sage Pub. Ltd).
I am Associate Professor of Maritime Safety with teaching duties on ship dynamics, loads and responses. My research focuses on deterministic and risk based ship safety. On the deterministic front I mostly work on wave loads, hydrodynamic and hydroelastic methods with impact on design for safety. My work on Risk Based ship safety looks into the de-resking of emerging technologies and concepts for enhanced maritime operations and functional performance.
I am from Greece and worked internationally for more than 20 years. I completed my PhD in 2002 on Ship Science (Hydroelasticity of Ships) at the University of Southampton. To date I have been sponsored by the EU, Lloyd's Register and their Foundation, British Maritime Technology and the Academy of Finland. Before joining Aalto university I worked for 14 years for Lloyd's Register (www.lr.org) Classification Society internationally (UK, Poland, South Korea) and spent short spells with UK based engineering consultancy firms. My industrial work involved research and product development, planning and strategy for R&D, consultancy and marine new construction activities. I have been the recepient of the Lloyd's List (2013) & the UK IMechE/Ross Brown F1(2012) Innovation Awards for my contribution to EU FP7 project Lynceus and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI - UK) charitabe activities respectively.
