Spyros is a Lecturer in Trauma Biomechanics in the Department of Bioengineering and the Biomechanics Theme Lead for the Royal British Legion Centre for Blast Injuries Studies at Imperial College London.
He received his first degree (Diploma, MEng equivalent) in Mechanical Engineering in 2004 from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece, and his PhD in biomechanics in 2008 from Imperial. Since then Spyros has worked in and supervised projects related to finite element (FE) modelling of human joints, material characterisation of soft tissues of joints, physical models of lower limb injury and their mitigation, design of arthroscopic devices, and engineering education.
Between 2010-12 Spyros was the ABF The Soldiers' Charity Research Fellow, acting as the engineering lead within a multidisciplinary group comprising clinicians, scientists and engineers, looking primarily at lower limb injury mechanics and injury mitigation technologies. This motif has carried over since the Fellowship, only now in addition to the lower extremity the research interest is also on injury to the pelvis and the spine.
