Short curriculum vitae

Aristotelis E. Charalampakis received his Degree in Civil Engineering in July, 1999 (major field Structural Mechanics, grade: 8.28/10, graduated 11th out of 216 students) from N.T.U.A.. In 2000, he received his MSc in Concrete Structures from Imperial College, London, UK, with distinction (rank: 1st). In the same year (2000) he received the Diploma of Imperial College (DIC), as well as Jenkins Prize "for excellence in structural mechanics". In 2001 he returned to Greece and completed his military service. In the following years, he worked as a self-employed engineer in various fields. During the period 2004–2009, he worked on his PhD entitled "Inelastic dynamic analysis of structures using Bouc–Wen hysteretic models" at the Statics and Aseismic Research Laboratory, N.T.U.A. under the supervision of professor V. K. Koumousis. He defended his thesis successfully in April 2009, and received his PhD in July of the same year.

His scientific interests include dynamic analysis of structures; plasticity; computational mechanics; computational hydraulics; optimization; metaheuristic algorithms, machine learning. He is the author of 3 books, 26 papers published in international scientific journals and numerous papers presented in international scientific conferences and symposia. He is an active reviewer in several international scientific journals . As a consulting engineer, he has completed several projects since 2002. He is also an active programmer with TechnoLogismiki, a software house he co-founded in 2002, developing and maintaining more than 25 programs for engineers.
