Sotirios Grammatikos is a Professor in polymers and composites at the Dept. of Manufacturing and Civil Engineering. He is a Materials Science Engineer, specialized in the area of product development, characterization, assessment and structural health monitoring of advanced composite materials and structures in aerospace, automotive and civil engineering applications. His main research interests are smart features of polymer, cement and asphalt composites (i.e. self-sensing, de-icing, etc.) enabled by nanotechnology, natural (green) materials, recycling and durability aspects. Before joining NTNU, he was a Research Fellow at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden (2016-2017) and previously a Research Associate at the University of Bath, UK (2014-2015) and a Post-doc at the University of Ioannina (2013). Sotirios holds a PhD in Materials Engineering specialized in Structural Integrity of Aerostructures (2009-2013), a MSc in Chemistry & Technology of Materials (2008-2010) and a diploma in Materials Science & Engineering from the University of Ioannina, Ioannina, Greece (2003-2008). Sotirios has received training in lightweight aerospace composites from the Hellenic Aerospace Industry (HAI), Athens, Greece (2008).
