Dr. Georgakis obtained his PhD from Wolverhampton University for the development of a platform for the integration of Intelligent Transport Systems. He has worked on a number of EPSRC and European FP research projects. Part of his postdoctoral worked examined systems design integration for marine applications as part of the EU-FP VRShips Project. He has a number of peer reviewed publications in areas such as intelligent transportation systems, integrated ICT platforms and frameworks, decision support systems and other. Current research interests involve the application of numerical methods and artificial intelligence techniques for the analysis of various measures and strategies and their performance on motorway and urban networks.
