Sotiria graduated with a Diploma in Civil Engineering from University of Patras, in Greece, in 2014, focusing in Structural Engineering. She obtained her M.Sc. degree (2-years course) in Seismic Design of Structures from the Department of Civil Engineering in Patras on July 2016. Her Master thesis was entitled “EN1998-3 versus Greek Retrofitting Code (KAN.EPE.) models to enhance ductility of reinforced concrete elements”. On September 2016 she started her PhD studies in the field of seismic retrofitting concrete structures. She is visiting The University of Sheffield as a research student, from March to May 2017, in the framework of Erasmus+ Traineeship program for 2016-2017, funded by the European Union.
