I have been a PhD student in the School of Engineering at the University of Glasgow since December 2012. I am working under the supervision of Dr Peter Grassl and Professor Simon Wheeler. I graduated as a civil engineer from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2011.

My project is on investigating the interaction of solid mechanics, mass transport and heat transfer in unsaturated soils. I aim to develop a virtual laboratory for "testing" unsaturated porous materials by modelling them on a lower scale. This will allow the improvement of understanding of the influence of water and gas transport and its interaction with mechanical response and temperature.
