Dr. Dimosthenis Kifokeris is Assistant Professor in Construction Production and Management of Construction Projects at Chalmers University of Technology, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Gothenburg, Sweden (02/2019-). His main research interests include costruction production, construction informatics (machine learning, blockchain, IoT, and BIM), lean construction, sustainable transformation of site processes, integrated project delivery, and constructability. Dimosthenis participates in domestic and international collaborative research between the academia and the industry. His interdisciplinary scientific perspectives include data science, applied statistics, organizational theory, and strategic management. In his Ph.D. at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (A.U.Th.), Greece (07/2014-11/2018), titled "Risk-based Constructability Assessment in Civil Engineering Projects", he implemented unsupervised and supervised machine learning to integrate construction management frameworks. He formerly was a project researcher and academic assistant at Chalmers (11/2018-01/2019), a researcher for TUD COST Action TU1406 (06/2015-04/2019), and a doctoral researcher and teaching assistant at A.U.Th. (07/2014-11/2018). He has also worked as an engineering consultant and construction manager (2008-2018). He has a M.Sc. in Engineering Project Management (2013, A.U.Th.), and a M.Eng. in Civil and Structural Engineering (2012, A.U.Th.). He is currently a member of, among others, SBU, Lean Forum Bygg, CMB, IABSE, IALCCE, and the Technical Chamber of Greece. He has been publishing and reviewing in top journals and peer-reviewed conference proceedings.
