Panos Papastergiou has more than 17 years of experience as a research and consultant engineer. Currently, he is a post-doctoral associate in Concrete and Earthquake Research group. He is the technical manager of various projects which deal with Fibre Reinforced Concrete using recycled steel fibres as well as Earthquake Engineering
His main interests are in Concrete and Earthquake engineering, Fibre Reinforced Polymers (FRP) and Fibre Reinforced Concrete (FRC). He is also keen in research planning and management, experimental techniques, data analysis as well as research proposal writing. Panos has also undertaken extensive commercial and research laboratory testing work on advanced composites, FRC, sprayed concrete and roller compacted concrete reinforced with steel manufactured and reused fibres.
Background: Panos obtained his first degree and masters from the University of Patras, Greece, focusing mainly on the earthquake field as well as repair and strengthening of RC buildings using concrete jacketing techniques. During his PhD studies at the department of Civil and Structural Engineering of UoS, he worked on an innovative technique of prestressing FRP sheets achieving active lateral confinement in concrete.
