Dr. Evangelos Kordatos, Senior Lecturer in Materials Engineering, Sheffield Hallam University, UK Graduated with an 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 Ph.D. in Materials Engineering from the University of Ioannina in 2013. Upon the completion of his Ph.D., he became a Postdoctoral research associate at Texas A&M University, Texas (USA), working on Non-Destructive assessment of aerospace materials, shape memory alloys (SMAs).
Evangelos joined Sheffield Hallam University in 2013 as a Lecturer in Materials Engineering and became a Senior Lecturer in 2016. Evangelos is the Course Leader for the BEng and MEng Materials Engineering courses at Sheffield Hallam University, UK and he led the MEng Materials Engineering course successful accreditation by the Institute of Materials, Minerals, and Mining (IOM3). His research is focused on the study of the mechanical and thermal behavior 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 behavior developing advanced NDE (Non-Destructive Evaluation) methodologies based on Infrared Thermography, Acoustic Emission, and Ultrasound.
