Charalampia is a final-year undergraduate student in Civil Engineering at the Cyprus University of Technology. Her undergraduate thesis is entitled “Durability of concrete structures in freeze-thaw weather” and her supervisor is Dr. Kyriacos Neocleous. She investigates the behaviour of concrete structures under freeze-thaw cycles and under low temperatures, which may cause concrete strength deterioration (general disruption, cracking and/or ultimate failure). Charalampia is visiting the University of Sheffield as a research student, from June to August 2016, in the framework of Erasmus+ Traineeship program for 2015-2016, funded by the European Union.
