(2020): Petros Giannaros was awarded the CSAR Award in 2017 during his 4th and final year of his PhD. His doctoral research focused on the development of autonomic self-healing concrete using microencapsulated healing agents which culminated in a large-scale field trial with the proposed technology. Petros currently works as a Civil-Structural Engineer for a global engineering design firm in Vancouver, Canada. He recently obtained his Professional Engineer designation and has worked on a variety of hydroelectric, bridge, highway, rail, industrial and marine projects. Petros continues to pursue research opportunities while working in industry. He recently co-authored a paper on the seismic evaluation of an old concrete arch dam.
