I am a Research Associate at the Department of Transportation Planning and Engineering of the School of Civil Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA). I am also Associate Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering and Surveying & Geoinformatics Engineering of the Faculty of Technological Applications of the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Athens. I hold a Rural and Surveying Engineering Diploma from NTUA (1991), and a PhD degree in Transport from NTUA (2002).

I have more than 25 years of experience in several fields of transportation planning and engineering and my interests are mainly focused in Highway Design, Road Safety and Vehicle Dynamics. I have participated in 9 research projects, published more than 40 scientific papers (12 in peer reviewed Journals) and participate in 3 international scientific committees. My professional experience involves employment in private and concession firms as well as public authorities for the design of numerous transport projects from various assigned positions; such as, geometric and operational designer, head of road design team, transportation engineering project coordinator and technical consultant.
