Lampros Koutas was a Post-Doctoral Research Associate at the Dept. of Civil and Structural Engineering of The University of Sheffield. He holds a Diploma (MEng equivalent) in Civil Engineering (2008), an MSc in Seismic Design of Structures (2010) and a PhD in Civil Engineering (2015), from The University of Patras (Greece). For a two-year period (2014-2016) he was working as a Research Associate at The University of Nottingham. He has extensively worked in projects related to the use of composite materials (such as FRP, TRM) in retrofitting existing reinforced concrete and masonry structures, and has built an expertise in the use of textile-fibre composites in structural and earthquake engineering applications. He is a member of the EU-funded COST Action TU1207 "Next Generation Guidelines for Composite Reinforcements", and a member of the fib Task Group 5.1 "FRP Reinforcement for Concrete Structures".
