Professor Sotirios Grammatikos, Dipl.-Ing., MSc, PhD, is currently Professor in Polymers and Composites at the Dept. of Manufacturing and Civil Engineering, Scientific Director of the Advanced and Sustainable Engineered Materials Laboratory (asemlab.no) and Leader of the Research Group Sustainable Composites. Sotirios is also Affiliated Professor at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden, and Visiting Scientist at the Hellenic Mediterranean University in Greece.
His main research interests are smart features of polymer composites, natural (green) materials, recycling, sustainability & durability aspects in aerospace, energy, automotive and infrastructure applications (e.g. GKN Aerospace, Hexagon (Composites), Huntsman, ACITURRI, Kongsberg, Suzlon). Before joining NTNU, he was a Research Fellow at Chalmers University of Technology, Sweden (2016-2017) and previously a Research Associate at the University of Bath, UK (2014-2015) and a Post-doc at the University of Ioannina (2013). He holds a PhD in Materials Engineering specialized in Structural Integrity of Aerostructures (2009-2013), a MSc in Chemistry & Technology of Materials (2008-2010) and a diploma in Materials Science & Engineering from the University of Ioannina, Greece (2003-2008). Last but not least, the polymer composites journey commenced with a training in lightweight aerospace composites from the Hellenic Aerospace Industry (HAI), Athens, Greece (2008).
