Theodosios Papathanasiou is lecturer(assistant professor) in Structural Engineering in the Department of Civil & Environmental Engineering at Brunel University London. He specialises in Computational Mathematics/Mechanics and in particular the development of Finite Element schemes for Coupled-Field problems. His main research interests are Hydroelasticity and Thermoelasticity. He is the author of more than 20 publications in peer reviewed journals, more than 30 publications in international scientific conferences, and has participated in numerous funded research projects. Dr Papathanasiou has been a Marie Curie Research Fellow (IAPP) in the University of Trento (Italy), where he conducted research on the thermomechanical response of refractory ceramics, the dynamic response of thermoelastic solids and numerical methods for generalised continuum field theories. Dr Papathanasiou is actively involved in teaching at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. He is a member of the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE) and the Greek Association for Computational Mechanics (GRACM).
