I am Associate Professor of Maritime Technology (Ship Safety) with teaching duties on Principles of Naval Architecture and Ship Dynamics. My research focuses on coupled and multidisciplinary problems. I combine knowedge from advanced ship & safety science, marine hydrodynamics & structures for the prediction of sea loads, safety and performance of ships and offshore structures operating in extreme conditions. On the enabling research front I work on 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 (UK), Member of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (USA) and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK). 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 from 2008-2012. 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 Hydroelasticity of Ships at the University of Southampton, UK where I am also Hononary Research Fellow since 2008. To date I have been sponsored by the EU, Lloyd's Register and their Foundation (LRF/LRET), 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.
