Dr Iraklis Lazakis

Senior Lecturer

Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering

Personal statement

I joined the Dpt of Naval Architecture, Ocean and Marine Engineering (NAOME) of the University in 2007 as a phd researcher while and I’m currently a Senior Lecturer at the same dpt since 2011. I principally teach Analysis tools for marine design, Principles of Marine design and production, System availability and maintenance in addition to Offshore renewables subjects such as marine operations, maintenance and reliability, systems condition monitoring, project management.

The above mentioned areas also reflect my key research and knowledge exchange interests which include among others ship operations, systems maintenance and reliability, ship systems condition monitoring, risk analysis tools and methodologies, system criticality assessment, shipyard manufacturing and productivity, asset management, wind-wave-tidal energy devices installation, operation and maintenance.

I am also currently involved in key departmental and Faculty-wide positions such as being NAOME Undergraduate Academic selector and Year 1 advisor of studies, Member of the NAOME management Committee, Chairman of NAOME Knowledge Exchange committee, Member of the University Recruitment and Knowledge Exchange committees at the Faculty of Engineering. In all the above activities my role is to support the NAOME scope and interests as well as helping colleagues in achieving greater success in research funding applications, academic publications and knowledge exchange activities.
