Personal statement

An academic and a chartered, professional engineer with an internationally recognized reputation for research and knowledge exchange in naval architecture, ocean and marine engineering. Strong researcher in the field of safety of marine operations and design for safety for more than 23 years, receiving a number of international awards for his work. 
He is currently the Director of the Maritime Safety Research Centre, sponsored by RCCL and DNVGL. He is also director of KE Proposals Development Director at NAOME. Co-inventor for a pending patent and PI and Co-I in EU and UK funded research projects. KE projects coordinator in UK and for EU-funded training courses.
Very committed to professional institutions through work with the Royal Institute of Naval Architects (RINA) in UK and the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) in US. Maximizing the impact as a member of the Royal Institute of Naval Architects’ Delegation to IMO on Ship Design & Construction and the International Intercessional correspondence group developing the new regulations for the international shipping. Member of the International Towing Tank Committee (ITTC) Technical Committee on Stability in Waves. Member of the Stability R&D Committee associated with the International Conference on the Stability of Ships and Offshore Structures (STAB). Member of the IMarEST Alternative Fuels from Shipping Special Interest Group and SNAME’s SD-11: Post Incident Safety Assurance Panel.
He has produced more than 120 publications in journals and international peer-reviewed conferences, he is the co-editor of the Proceedings of STAB 2015 and has 5 chapters in books.
