Mr Andreas CHRISTOFE

Researcher C

Education: Andreas Christofi holds a BSc/MSc degree in Civil and Structural Engineering from Aristotle University in Thessaloniki (1996). During his studies as well as his dissertation work, he was granted a scholarship from the Greek State Scholarship Foundation (I.K.Y). He is a member of the Remote Sensing and Geo-Environment Lab (ERATOSTHENES Research Centre) of the Department of Civil Engineering and Geomatics, and is currently a PhD candidate in the field of corrosion and durability of reinforced concrete using remote sensing and GIS technologies.

Professional background: After graduating, he was employed by Athinodorou Super Beton Ltd (1997-2008) as chief civil engineer in the field of design, production and quality control of ready-mix concrete. During his employment, he focused on importing and introducing new technologies for ready-mix concrete to improve the use of raw materials and enhance production capabilities. He is a licensed contractor from the Council for the Registration and Control of Contractors in Cyprus since 2008 and he worked as a general manager in R&A Constructions Ltd dealing with large infrastructure projects. He had also worked as a senior consultant in the areas of Crisis and Disaster management as well as in Seismic Design of large infrastructure projects. In 2012- 2013, he was employed in the Department of Secondary Technical and Vocational Education of the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture and he was teaching several courses in civil and structural engineering.

Research: Since 2013, Andreas has joined CUT, and he participated in many research projects. Some of them are the Anagennisis project funded by the EU’s FP7 programme in the field of Innovative Reuse of All Tyre Components in Concrete and the STEELCOR project funded by EC structural funds, which dealt with the corrosion in concrete steel reinforcement.  He currently participates in the PVrosion Integrated Project funded by the Research Promotion Foundation in the field of accelerated corrosion blind spots Inherent to photovoltaic Systems. Finally, Andreas applied for IP advice through the IPBooster-META group for developing a patent, and he is in process of obtaining stage 3 (Comprehensive IP evaluation/ due diligence). The proposed technology is an efficient and low-cost system that identifies and quantifies corrosion on concrete structures.
