    Evangelos’ research is focused on the study of the mechanical and thermal behaviour of advanced materials, such as Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs), Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs), Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymers (CFRPs), Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs), smart materials, etc. He has worked extensively on the non-destructive monitoring of materials behaviour developing advanced NDE (Non-Destructive Evaluation) methodologies based on Infrared Thermography, Acoustic Emission and Ultrasounds. The main areas of his research interests involve: 

    • Non-destructive methodologies for real-time monitoring of damage
    • Mechanical behaviour (fatigue, tension, bending etc.) of advanced materials
    • Life prediction and quantification of damage of materials and structures
    • Energy efficiency of buildings
