Athanasios P. Chassiakos holds a diploma in Civil Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens, a M.Sc. and a Ph.D. degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Minnesota, U.S.A. He is presently an Associate Professor in construction project and infrastructure management. He is the Director of the Project, Infrastructure and City Management Laboratory.

He is the author of two books and over 100 scientific publications in international journals and conference proceedings while he has participated as an invited speaker in international conferences. He has been the principal investigator or researcher in research and technical projects supported by EU and Greek funding.

He is a member of the Editorial Board of the journals Advances in Engineering Software and Smart Infrastructure and Construction as well as of several international conferences. He is member of national and international scientific and professional associations. He has acted as a reviewer in over 20 international journals. He has been awarded for his doctoral dissertation and for published work.

His research interests are in the areas: construction project and infrastructure management, information and communication technologies in construction, digital solutions for management of the built environment, smart cities, infrastructure and construction, safety management in construction, new material and technology testing in highway structures and operation, dynamic analysis of highway pavements under moving loads, system and process optimization.
