"Dr Stylianos (Stelios) Yiatros is a Lecturer in Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics since October 2011. Prior to his election at the Cyprus University of Technology, he was a Lecturer in Structural Design at Brunel University in the UK. Stelios has secured a Marie Curie Intra European Fellowship and since early 2015 is undertaking experimental structural integrity and stability research at Cranfield University in the UK for 2 years. Stelios holds a Master of Engineering (First Class Hons) in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Imperial College London (UK) where he received the Prize for the Best Final Year Project with Industrial Application in Civil Engineering. He then pursued a doctorate in the field of nonlinear structural mechanics with a scholarship from Imperial College and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (UK), which he successfully completed in 2010. During his studies at Imperial, Stelios was heavily involved in the teaching of undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Civil Engineering and in 2009 he was the first to be named the Best Graduate Teaching Assistant for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering"
His research interests include topics of nonlinear structural stability such as mode interaction and buckling localization in thin-walled structures and composites, experimental structural stability and integrity of metal foam sandwich structures as well as sustainable construction methodologies. He is also interested in the use of novel tools to improve the intuitive understanding of structural behaviour and has contributed to the development of free online content for University Teachers through the Royal Academy of Engineering HE STEM scheme.
