Christos is an international expert in the field of structural monitoring and dynamics, and has a large international research network – among others with Stanford University. Christos’ research is related to monitoring and control. He has been focusing especially on cable bridges and wind turbines, and has experience in relevant topics such as wind load and structural response, operational modal analysis, icing of structures, FEM modelling, bridge design, etc.

Aside from his academic merits, Christos has industrial experience and has worked on projects such as design-check of T5 at Heathrow and the Millennium Bridge in London. Also, he designed the Tuned Liquid Dampers Array for the 102 metres tall European Court of Justice in Luxemburg.

Christos comes from a professorship at DTU, where he, very successfully, has lead a research project on wind-induced vibrations of bridge cables which was partially sponsored by Femern A/S.
