Personal profile

Academic Biography

Christoforos Dimopoulos was appointed as Lecturer in Civil Engineering at Teesside University in February 2019. Previously, he was a KTP Research Associate at Oxford Brookes University (2018-2019), a post-doctoral Marie-Curie Research Fellow at the University of Warwick (2015-2017), a Civil Engineer at Larnaca Water Board in Cyprus (2013-2015).

His research interests are focused on the behavior and ultimate strength of structural members, connections and structural systems against normal loads, and accidental or seismic hazards, incorporating integrated computational modeling and testing. Past and current research focuses on the development of novel structural connections for advanced seismic response of buildings, the robustness assessment of steel buildings, the stiffening of manhole openings in tubular steel wind turbine towers and the stability behavior and strength of steel arches.

Christoforos studied Civil Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (Diploma, 2004). He then specialized in the Analysis and Design of Structures (MSc, 2006) and continued to receive a Doctorate in Structural Engineering (PhD, 2012) from the same university.
