I am a Building Engineer and Architect (MSc./Ph.D.) with extensive work experience shared between industry and academia. Currently, I work as a postdoctoral research scientist at the Department of Built Environment and Energy Technology, developing and examining one-stop-shop business models for energy renovations of residential buildings, and renovation scenarios in a climate change adaptation context. 

Apart from my research, I am a passionate volunteer participating, in the last 13 years, in various projects related to infrastructure development and maintenance and promotion of local communities' well-being in Africa and South-East Asia, as a member of Engineers Without Borders. 

Teaching

Georgios' teaching activities are related to innovation diffusion in the building sector and the application of building regulations and energy laws in the building renovation market. Additionally, Georgios is engaged in teaching activities related to the Life Cycle Analysis of buildings. Georgios is involved in the following courses:

  • Life Cycle Analysis (4BT321)
  • Diffusion of Innovations for a Sustainable Built Environment (4BT012)
  • Evaluation and Design of Energy Policies (4BT315)
  • Hållbar Utveckling (1ZT902)
  • Energi och hållbar utveckling (2BT312)

Research

My research lies at the intersection of building design, entrepreneurship, and sustainability. Specifically, I study the dynamics between the various actors involved in the residential buildings renovation demand and supply chains and develop scenarios for the energy renovations of the existing residential building stock. With my research, I am trying to provide solutions to the fragmented renovation supply chains, and address the needs of tenants and building owners, including those who are already in, or near the energy poverty spectrum in the near future. In addition, my research aims to increase the resilience of the built environment against the negative impacts caused by climate change. All these topics have become increasingly crucial both at the European Union level and worldwide.

My main interests include energy performance in buildings, policy analysis, climate finance, innovative business models, climate change mitigation, circularity, and sustainability transitions. I have in-depth knowledge in project management, data analysis, policy assessment, and evaluation and monitoring of micro, small and medium-sized businesses in the construction industry.
