Timos received a 5-year Diploma in Mechanical and Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Patras, Greece, in 2002, and a PhD in Computational Engineering Design from the University of Cambridge in 2006. He then received a graduate certificate from MIT in Architecture and Systems Engineering in 2017.

Research opportunities

Please get in touch if you are interested in computational engineering design optimisaton methods, multi-physics topology optimisation, post-processing of optimisation processes for decision-making, and other related topics.

There are opportunities for Research Assistants and Research Fellows as part of large national and international projects.

Current activities

Timos is working on multi-physics optimisation methods, change propagation in engineering design, value-driven design, interactive computational design, and multidimensional engineering data visualisation using a novel implementation of Parallel Coordinates.

Timos is currently working within the ONEheart project which received funding from UKRI ATI and it is led by Airbus UK. He is working on novel computational design methodologies for probabilistic design requirements management and multi-fidelity multidisciplinary design optimisation under uncertainties.

Timos was the Principal Investigator of FUTPRINT50 project which received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme ( and

FutPrint50 was an international collaborative research project that aimed to have a hybrid-electric aircraft up to 50 seats in commercial service by 2035/40. Discover the full story:
