Dr. Grigorios Tsinidis
Dr. Tsinidis is an Assistant Professor in Computational Geotechnical Engineering & Soil-Structure Interaction at the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Thessaly, Greece, and a member of the Division of Geotechnical and Geo-Environmental Engineering. He holds a Diploma in Civil Engineering (2007), an MSc in Earthquake Engineering and Seismic Design of Structures (2008) and a PhD in Civil Engineering (2015) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. His research interests lie in the fields of computational geotechnical engineering and soil-structure interaction, as well as infrastructure response and vulnerability to seismic and other natural hazards, with emphasis on underground structures, tunnels, and bridge foundations. He has extensively worked on the above topics in the frame of various research projects during his doctoral studies and as a Postdoctoral Researcher. He has published more than 55 articles in international scientific journals and conferences. His published work has attracted more than 750 citations the last seven years (excluding self-citations or citations by co-authors). Dr. Tsinidis has reviewed more than 110 articles for 26 International Scientific Journals. Additionally, he has worked as a Civil Engineer / Consultant for 2.5 years for consultancies in Vienna, Austria (FCP Fritsch, Chiari & Partner ZT GmbH, Vienna Consulting Engineers ZT GmbH), providing services in a variety of industrial projects worldwide, i.e., design of surface and deep foundations of bridges, design of excavations in densely constructed areas, design of temporary and permanent retaining structures, earthquake analyses of buildings, fatigue verifications of structural elements, designs of ballastless railway tracks etc. He is member of scientific and professional institutions, including the Technical Chamber of Greece (TEE), the Hellenic Society of Soil Mechanics and Geotechnical Engineering (HSSMGE) and the Hellenic Society of Earthquake Engineering (ETAM). He acts as Principal Investigator of research project INFRARES.
