I obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Piraeus University of Applied Sciences (T.E.I. of Piraeus).
During and after my studies for my degree I worked in the field of failure analysis, mainly on cold working tool steels. After my first degree I obtained a Master of Science degree in Advanced Industrial and Manufacturing Systems from the Kingston University of London.
I am now pursuing a PhD in the IMPaCT Centre based at the University of Leicester. I am currently investigating Experimental characterization of weld cracking susceptibility for advanced high strength steels, in collaboration with Tata Steel.
It is hoped that my research will lead to the Development of techniques and procedures for weld cracking susceptibility assessment, development of materials, welding processes and guidelines for increased weld cracking resistance and the development of advanced line pipe product for ultra-deep water applications (>3000m depth)
