Discipline: Engineering
Degrees:
B.S., University of Patras, 2003; M.S., UC Berkeley, 2004; Ph.D., UC Berkeley, 2008
Research interests: My research focus is on assessing and mitigating the impact of multi-hazard stressors on geotechnical engineering infrastructure (like dams, levees, ports), with particular emphasis on challenges due to age-related deterioration, population growth and densification, natural and human-made hazards and new demands from climate change.
