About Me Publications
I have a bachelor’s diploma in civil engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece (1998), and an MS (2000) and PhD (2004) from the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at MIT. My research focuses on understanding the response of geological features and geotechnical systems to natural and man made hazards, such as earthquakes. I am associate editor for the ASCE Journal of Computing in Civil Engineering; for Earthquake Spectra (EERI); for Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering; and for Soils and Foundations (Japanese Geotechnical Society). I am also the recipient of the 2009 Arthur Casagrande Award from the ASCE Geo-Institute, the 2012 Shamsher Prakash Research Award in Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering; and the 2014 Young Investigator award from the International Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering.
