Dimos Charmpis obtained a Diploma in Civil Engineering (5-year course) from National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in Greece (1994). He also received a Master of Business Administration (MBA) from NTUA and Athens University of Economics and Business (1999). He then earned a Ph.D. degree from NTUA (2003) after completing a thesis on topics in the area of Computational Mechanics. As a postdoctoral researcher he worked together with research groups at NTUA and University of Innsbruck (Austria) during 2003-2005. In August 2005 he joined the University of Cyprus, where he is currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering.
The research interests of Dr. Charmpis cover various topics of Structural Engineering and aim in the exploitation of innovative computing systems and numerical methods for the analysis and design of structures under static or dynamic/seismic loading.
