Dimitrios studied civil engineering at the Democritus University of Thrace in Greece, specialising in geotechnical engineering. For his diploma thesis, he numerically investigated the deformations of a highway trial embankment constructed over soft soils.
He then moved to London, where he undertook the Advanced Soil Mechanics MSc course at Imperial College. For his master's thesis “Numerical modelling of monopile foundations in sand”, he investigated the impact of the choice of constitutive model for reproducing the mechanical response of sand on the foundation’s behaviour. Afterwards, he worked as a geotechnical and tunnel engineer in London.
Since October 2020, Dimitrios has been a DPhil student at the department of Engineering Science of the University of Oxford, for the WAMESS CDT program. He is funded by Fugro.
