O&M session champion/chair in Taiwan and Japan for the EPSRC-funded EPENET (Edinburgh-Pacific Partnership of Excellence in New Energy Technologies) project, workshops and events held in Hsinchu (Taiwan) and Kyoto (Japan) at the beginning of March 2013
ISSC committee IV.2 member 2012-2015. The International Ships and offshore Structures Congress is a prestigious event held every three years. It is a forum for the exchange of information by experts undertaking and applying marine structural research. The aim of the ISSC is to further understanding in the various disciplines underpinning marine structural design, production and operation through internationally collaborative endeavours.
ISSC 2012 committee observer
Laureate of the Edelman awards 2012. The Franz Edelman competition attests to the contributions of operations research and analytics in both the profit and non-profit sectors. The purpose of the Franz Edelman competition is to bring forward, recognize and reward outstanding examples of operations research, management science and advanced analytics in practice in the world
I joined the Dpt of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) of the University in 2007 as a phd researcher while and I’m currently a Senior Lecturer at the same dpt since 2011. I principally teach Analysis tools for marine design, Principles of Marine design and production, System availability and maintenance in addition to Offshore renewables subjects such as marine operations, maintenance and reliability, systems condition monitoring, project management.
The above mentioned areas also reflect my key research and knowledge exchange interests which include among others ship operations, systems maintenance and reliability, ship systems condition monitoring, risk analysis tools and methodologies, system criticality assessment, shipyard manufacturing and productivity, asset management, wind-wave-tidal energy devices installation, operation and maintenance.
I am also currently involved in key departmental and Faculty-wide positions such as being NAOME Undergraduate Academic selector and Year 1 advisor of studies, Member of the NAOME management Committee, Chairman of NAOME Knowledge Exchange committee, Member of the University Recruitment and Knowledge Exchange committees at the Faculty of Engineering. In all the above activities my role is to support the NAOME scope and interests as well as helping colleagues in achieving greater success in research funding applications, academic publications and knowledge exchange activities.
Since my appointment at the Dpt of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering at the University of Strathclyde i have been teaching the following modules/subjects:
Analysis tools for marine design, Principles of Marine design and production, System availability and maintenance
System availability and maintenance
Industrial Doctoral Centre for Offshore renewables (IDCORE): marine operations, maintenance and reliability, systems condition monitoring, project management
I am also currently supervising a number of undergraduate, postgraduate and Phd students regarding their individual projects/thesis, acting as lead supervisor on subjects such as: systems maintenance and reliability, ship systems condition monitoring, risk analysis, criticality assessment, shipyard manufacturing and productivity, asset management, wind-wave-tidal energy devices, renewable projects operation and maintenance, project management.
Before joining the Dpt of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) at the University of Strathclyde, i was employed as a professional naval architect/marine engineer in a number of areas across the maritime industry for almost 10 years. My activities included among others attending and supervising surveys and repairs of a number of different ship types and sizes at various shipyards worldwide, accident investigation surveys, ship Special/Intermediate/Close-up surveys as well as sailing onboard ships when required.
In this respect, the above assisted in bringing back to the academic environment the industrial knowledge and expertise I accumulated over the previous years as well as enabled closer contact and cooperation with companies such as SSE, SPR, Technip, Shell, Mitsubishi, V-Ships, and a number of other companies engaged in the wider industrial domain. The results of the above are reflected in a wide research and knowledge exchange portfolio I lead and participate including ongoing collaborations with the mentioned companies through active projects and future project proposals.
Expertise & Capabilities
Throughout the last few years I have developed and enhanced my expertise in areas including ship operations, systems maintenance and reliability, ship systems condition monitoring, risk analysis tools and methodologies, system criticality assessment, shipyard manufacturing and productivity, asset management, wind-wave-tidal energy devices, renewable projects operation and maintenance, project management.
