Evripides Loukaides


I am a Senior Lecturer in Solid Mechanics at the University of Bath and a member of both the Advanced Design & Manufacturing (ADM) and Materials & Structures (MAST) groups. I have a diverse set of research interests, particularly relating to the mechanics and manufacturing of thin-shell structures.
