Constantine Michailides


Dr. Constantine Michailides holds a BSc, MSc and PhD in Civil Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece. He did a PhD (2012) in Marine and Offshore Engineering in hydroelasticity of floating structures and wave energy production. Since May 2013, he joined Centre for Ships and Ocean Structures (CeSOS) and Centre for Autonomous Marine Operations and Systems (AMOS) in the Department of Marine Technology at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). In NTNU he was working as Postdoctoral Researcher mainly on projects with focus to experimental and numerical investigation of combined offshore wind turbines and ocean energy devices until January 2016 when he was appointed as a Senior Lecturer in the Marine and Offshore Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University, UK.

Research Interest

His research focuses on global and local numerical analysis of offshore and coastal structures and systems (oil and gas, renewable energy, ports), fluid-structure interaction, wave kinematics, hydro -dynamics -elasticity, ocean energy devices, offshore wind technology, offshore combined energy systems, physical model testing, structural health monitoring, optimization, genetic algorithms and floating bridges/tunnels. Recent interests include reliability analysis for offshore engineering applications, CFD and coastal morphodynamics.
