7. CERN - Transportation Requirements and Related Infrastructure
The scope of the CERN project was to record and analyze existing transportation conditions and needs of the CERN community and to highlight innovative solutions for establishing a sustainable transportation system for the CERN community. Within this context, the objectives of the proposed project were:
1. Analysis of travel patterns of the CERN community (staff, users, visitors),
2. Proposals for possible improvements – additions to the CERN transportation system,
3. Examination of the impacts on demand from possible improvements,
4. Proposals and plans for immediate as well as medium and longer range improvements on community mobility, and
5. Proposals for innovative and environmentally friendly (green) technologies, to improve on the living and working
quality of the CERN community.
Proposed improvements focused on enhancing accessibility by mitigating the adverse impacts of transport congestion and promoting green transportation alternatives. The ultimate goal was to couple CERN’s reputation as research centre of innovation and excellence with a model environmentally friendly transportation community.
The project was jointly undertaken by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) and the Institute of Shipping and Transport Applications Κ.Μ.Lο S.A. (IN.S.T.A.L.) of University of the Aegean.
6. Evaluation of Rural Inclusion Services
The main objective of this project is the validation of the existing RURAL INCLUSION project's services at the Chamber of Chios. The project was funded by the Rural Inclusion Project.

This project creates a comprehensive green transport policy, research and development action plan for Aegean island areas, accounting for the unique characteristics and growth prospects of the area in its multiple dimensions. This is done through the fusion of ideas, data, and models in four pillars: “travel behavior of resident population”, “tourist preferences”, “environmental analysis”, and “economic and financial evaluation”. The project identifies the factors that affect the study area development by: a) defining the requirements of decision makers; b) investigating individual activity and travel patterns; and c) exploring island destination choice for tourists. Data collection includes network and land use data that characterize living and traveling environments, surveys for residents and tourists, and atmospheric pollution data. Based on this information we develop advanced integrated discrete and latent variable choice models for both tourists and residents to simulate their travel behavior. We also develop environmental and economic models to analyze and evaluate the impact of green transport policies. The final product is a policy platform which includes environmental analysis, travel simulation, and economic analysis.
5. PACTS Program (Policy Analysis for Complex Transport Systems)
Professional Course, Evaluation of Curricular Developed
PACTS is a policy oriented measures project intended to “tune” and intensify the knowledge exchange and collaboration between the EU and the US on the Policy Analysis for Complex Transport Systems. More specifically, this transatlantic project aims at investigating the predictability, accuracy and structure of current transportation models, and on identifying how well they address key aspects for policy analysis.

Basic Researcher - Survey Designer and Modeler
The scope of this proposal is to develop the theoretical basis for PPPs in the transport sector. Key objectives to be addressed on a national and modal perspective by the three working groups are: (i) A decision making process for selection, implementation and operation of PPP transport projects considering ‘sustainable procurement’ and ‘value propositions’; (ii) Identification of critical success factors, test criteria and knowledge-bases for improved PPP performance; (iii) Implications of the financial arrangement. Findings are cross-studied by auxiliary working groups focusing on the national context and the modal (urban, surface and port) context, respectively.
Effective management of small- mid- and large size teams.
Preparation of proposals, including technical and financial aspects .
Enthusiastic in teaching.
Attracting positive feedback and evaluation from students.
Presentations and communication skills, both at professional and scientific venues
Journal of Transport and Shipping (JTS) is an international multidisciplinary referred Journal the purpose of which is to present manuscripts that are concerned with case-studies, empirical, descriptive, policy-making and prescriptive research linked to actual problems relevant to shipping, trade and transport.
