Dr Georgios Kampas
University of Greenwich – Principal Investigator (PI)
Georgios is a Senior Lecturer in Civil Engineering at the University of Greenwich and the Principal Investigator (PI) of this project. He holds a diploma in Civil Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, an MSc in Engineering Seismology from University of Grenoble and a PhD in Structural Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece. Georgios’ areas of interest and expertise are resilient structures or infrastructure systems (with a focus on bridges and tunnels) against natural hazards, earthquake engineering, seismic isolation and structural health monitoring. His work mainly lies on the interface between structural and geotechnical engineering with a specific focus on soil-structural interaction. His research work has won the “N. Amvrazis” New Investigator Award from the Hellenic Association of Earthquake Engineering (2013) and the Early Career Researcher (ECR): Research Excellence Award (2019) from the University of Greenwich.
He envisions to develop an interdisciplinary consortium of collaborators in order to tackle the great challenge of designing the first resilient structures on the Moon and Mars within the ISRU framework.
