Biography:

Dr Antonios Kanellopoulos graduated with a BEng (Hons) from Cardiff University in 2000 in Civil Engineering and obtained an MSc and PhD degrees in 2001 and 2004 respectively from Cardiff University working the microstructural properties of Ultra High Performance Fibre Reinforced Cementitious Composites and more specifically those affecting workability and self-desiccation. He then moved to Greece and worked as trainee civil engineer in order to obtain his professional engineering licence. In 2005 joined University College London to undertake an MSc in Project and Enterprises Management and following the completion of the course he joined Cardiff University to perform research funded by Laing O’Rourke on the behaviour of precast slab elements under positive and negative bending.

In 2007 he joined University of Cyprus (UCY) as postdoctoral fellow on a €255,000 project investigating experimentally and analytically the fresh and hardened properties of self-compacting concrete. In 2011, following the completion of the project at UCY, he took up a visiting lectureship in Frederick University Cyprus and in 2013 returned to the UK to join University of Cambridge as Research Associate. Currently his research focuses on the development of a nano/micro-scale chemical and biological self-healing system applicable to construction materials.

He is a member of American Concrete Institute, RILEM, and European Structural Integrity Society, participating in various technical committees. Dr Kanellopoulos is also a reviewer for various international journals (International Journal of Fracture, ACI Materials, ACI Structural, Cement and Concrete Composites etc.).
