Personal profile

Personal Statement

I have been the DNV GL Reader on Safety of Marine Systems at Maritime Safety Research Centre (MSRC) of the Department of Naval Architecture, Ocean & Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde since July 2017. I joined the University of Strathclyde as Lecturer in Jan 2013.  I graduated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 1994 and obtained a PhD degree, also from NTUA, in 2001 in the discipline of Marine Engineering.

My research focuses on the development of scientific approaches to holistically capture the safety, energy and sustainability interplay of the complex marine systems including cyber-physical and autonomous systems by employing advanced model-based methods and tools for the design and optimisation of marine systems pursuing life-cycle risk and energy management, efficiency improvement, and safety and sustainability enhancement, which lead the development of safe, feasible and green design/operating alternatives that can meet the demanding marine industry requirements.
