I am currently a Charles M. Vest Scholar in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT and Ph.D. Candidate in Engineering Department at University of Cambridge. I hold a Master’s Degree in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering from UCLA as well. I had been honored with the International Doctoral Scholar (IDS) EPSRC Award (2016) at University of Cambridge and the UCLA Outstanding Graduate Student award (2015) for my academic performance and contributions as a Teaching Assistant in my Department. I was also ranked in the top 1% among approximately 200 undergraduates in the Civil Engineering Department at the University of Patras in Greece (2014).
During my Civil Engineering studies, I have been given the opportunity to delve into a variety of courses including Structures, Geotechnics, Transportation, Construction Management, Water Resources and Environmental Engineering. I had also the chance to participate in technical visits in various construction sites in Los Angeles and Greece. I have been an intern in two major contractor companies in Greece, mostly getting involved in construction approaches and management aspects of highway infrastructure.
I have 2 peer-reviewed journal papers in Civil Engineering Journals and 8 conference publications in major International Computing in Civil Engineering and Geotechnical Engineering Conferences. I have co-authored a Chapter for the Infrastructure Computer Vision Book and a Geotechnical Engineering Reconnaissance Report (GEER) for the Earthquakes in Cephalonia, Greece (2014).
My Ph.D. Studies are on the field of Construction Information Modeling of Industrial facilities.
