I am Visiting Professor of Marine Technology at the Marine & Arctic Technology Group of Aalto University and the Manager of Global Ship Systems Centre of ABS at Athens, Greece. To date my work involved research, product development, management, planning and strategy for R&D, consultancy and marine new construction. I combine knowledge from advanced ship theory for safe and sustainable ships and their systems operating under extreme events. I also focus on de-risking emerging technologies (e.g. big data analytics, nuclear technology, autonomy etc.) for use in ship design and operations. I am European and Chartered Engineer, Fellow of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (UK) and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (USA). I am a member of the International Towing Tank Conference since 2021 and the International Ships and Offshore Structures Congress since 2006, serving as member in various committees and chair of committee I.2 on Loads from 2008-2012. Part of my editorial duties involve Associate Editorship of the IMechE Proceedings Part M : Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment (ISSN:14750902, Sage Pub. Ltd). To date I have been sponsored by the EU Framework programs, Lloyd's Register and their Foundation (LRF), British Maritime Technology, The Finnish Maritime Foundation (Merenkulun säätiö) and the Academy of Finland.
