Orestis graduated from the National Technical University of Athens in 2011, with a five year diploma in civil engineering, specializing in geotechnical engineering. His thesis examined the static and dynamic response of cylindrical structures on rigid, elastic and inelastic soil.

Orestis joined Cambridge University's Geotechnical and Environmental Research Group in 2012. He is currently a PhD research student supervised by Dr Madabhushi.

Research Interests

Orestis' current research is focused on the dynamic response of shallow foundations on liquefiable soil.
