Associate Professor Athanasios P. Chassiakos was born in Amphissa (1964). He holds a diploma in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (1988), a M.Sc. (1990) and a Ph.D. degree (1992) in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota, U.S.A. He has joined the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Patras in 1995 as a Lecturer and since 2008 he is an Associate Professor.

He is the author or co-author of two books and over 60 scientific publications in international journals and conference proceedings while he has participated as an invited speaker in international conferences. He has been a researcher or principal investigator in 15 funded research projects. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the journals Advances in Engineering Software and Recent Patents on Computer Science and has been a member of the Editorial Board of several international conferences. He is member of national and international scientific associations and a reviewer in 14 international journals. He has been awarded for his doctoral dissertation and for published work.

He currently serves as the Director of Graduate Studies in the Department of Civil Engineering of the University of Patras. He has been the Director of the Graduate Program of the Hellenic Open University in Engineering Project Management for several years.

His main research interests are in the areas of risk management in construction, information and communication technologies in construction, optimization of project planning and scheduling, artificial intelligence application in construction management, economic evaluation of projects and investments, and life-cycle management of highways.
