Dr Evangelos Kordatos is Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Materials Engineering at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. He is also Course Leader of BEng/MEng Materials Engineering. Dr Kordatos graduated with a MEng degree in Materials Science and Engineering from the University of Ioannina, Greece, in 2008. He received his MSc in Chemistry and Materials Technology and his PhD in Materials Engineering from the University of Ioannina in 2013. Upon the completion of his PhD, he became a Postdoctoral research associate at the Texas A&M University, Texas (USA). Dr Kordatos’ research is focused on the study of the mechanical and thermal behaviour of advanced materials, such as Metal Matrix Composites (MMCs), Ceramic Matrix Composites (CMCs), Carbon Fibre Reinforced Polymers (CFRPs), Shape Memory Alloys (SMAs), smart materials, etc. He has worked extensively on the non-destructive monitoring of materials behaviour developing advanced NDE (Non-Destructive Evaluation) methodologies based on Infrared Thermography, Acoustic Emission and Ultrasounds.
Research Interest: • Non-destructive methodologies for real-time monitoring of damage • Mechanical behaviour of advanced materials • Life prediction and quantification of damage in materials and structures • Energy efficiency of buildings
