Antonios  Mantakas

National Technical University of Athens, Greece


Antonios was born in Athens, Greece in 1991. He graduated from the School of Civil Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) where he defended his thesis in the field of Soil-Structure Interaction and Geotechnical Earthquake Engineering. He received a Master’s degree from Imperial College, London in the field of Soil Mechanics and Business Management with an overall classification of a strong distinction. Following his studies, Antonis joined Ramboll UK, a leading engineering consulting firm, at the position of geotechnical engineer. He focused on the design of piled-raft foundations of high-rise buildings and offshore wind farms both in the United Kingdom and Denmark. Earlier in his career, he worked with Grid Engineers and the NTUA, conducting research in the field of soil dynamics and geotechnical engineering.

Antonios’ participation in INSPIRE aims to produce high quality research work by introducing novel materials and innovative soil-structure techniques for the protection of structures, hence providing potential to develop the perception on the current conventional design approaches.

During his free time, Antonios enjoys listening and composing music, hiking, snowboarding and windsurfing.
