K. Kapasakalis
Mr. Kapasakalis joined the Resilience Guard team as a Risk Engineer, specializing in technical and operational risk assessment and risk mitigation strategies.

He holds a degree in Civil Engineering (2015) from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), an MSc in Analysis and Design of Earthquake Resistant Structures (2017) from the same university, and a PhD (2020) from the Institute of Structural Analysis and Antiseismic Research at NTUA. His PhD focused on the development of vibration absorbers in civil engineering structures and was awarded the 1st prize for the Best PhD Thesis in the field of antiseismic research by the Hellenic Association for Earthquake Engineering (HAEE) in 2021.

After his PhD, he received a Postdoctoral Fellowship from the Bodossaki Foundation in 2021 to conduct research on wind turbine vibration mitigation at NTUA in collaboration with ETH Zurich, Switzerland. During the academic year 2022-2023 he was an external instructor at the Department of Civil Engineering at the University of Patras. He is a Chartered Engineer since 2019 (member of the Technical Chamber of Greece).

His research expertise is related to the mitigation of environmental loading, such as earthquakes and wind loads, in civil engineering structures, focusing on the seismic protection of structures from both vertical and horizontal earthquake components with the development of innovative seismic absorption devices and retrofit strategies, as well as on the design of vibration control configurations for wind turbine towers.
