Dimosthenis Kifokeris

Associate Professor at Building Design

Dr. Dimosthenis Kifokeris is Associate Professor in Construction Production and Management of Construction Projects. His main interests include construction production, construction management, construction informatics (machine learning, blockchain/DLT, IoT, and BIM), lean and industrialized construction, sustainability and circularity of site processes, and constructability. Dimosthenis participates in domestic and international collaborative research between the academia and the industry. His interdisciplinary scientific perspectives include labor process theory, organizational theory, strategic management, and data science. In his PhD thesis he utilized supervised and unsupervised machine learning to appraise the constructability of buildings and infrastructural projects through risk analysis. He is currently a member of, among others, CREON, EC3, SBU, SBUF, Lean Forum Bygg, CMB, IALCCE, the Technical Chamber of Greece, various Erasmus+ agreements, and previously of IABSE. He has co-chaired the EC3 2022 PhD Summer School in Rhodes, Greece, in July 18-22, 2022.
