"Dr. Orestes Marangos was born in Nicosia, Cyprus and is a Research Fellow in the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics of the Cyprus Institute of Technology (CUT). Orestes began his studies at the Higher Technical Institute in Cyprus where he earned the Diploma of Technician Engineer in the field of Civil Engineering. Orestes graduated with the Best Aggregate Performance in all subjects studied in the Civil Engineering Course and also received the award for best project in Civil Engineering. He continued his education in the United States of America and earned his B.Sc. and M.S. degrees from University of Missouri-Kansas City in 2002 and 2004 and his Ph.D. degree from the University of Kansas (with honors), in civil engineering in 2010. During that time, Orestes reached the Dean’s List and was awarded the Outstanding Graduate Student Award for two years. During his post-graduate studies he received the prestigious Chancellor’s Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Fellowship Award, which supported his research for two consecutive years (2005-2007.)"
Orestes’ research interests include quantitative scanning acoustic microscopy of biomaterials, ultrasonic wave propagation modeling of heterogeneous substrates, numerical methods for ultrasonic field computations and the development of methodologies for material property measurements using complementary microscopic techniques.
