Nikolaos Dervilis is a Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Sheffield and a member of the Dynamics Research Group (DRG). He studied physics in the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Later, he obtained his MSc in Sustainable and Renewable Energy Systems from the University of Edinburgh in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Engineering. He obtained his PhD from the University of Sheffield, Mechanical Engineering Department in the field of machine learning for Structural Health Monitoring (SHM). His expertise focuses on SHM, pattern recognition, data analysis and nonlinear dynamics. He is especially engaged with renewable energy research, particularly wind turbine farms.

Research interests

Nikolaos’s current research interests include:

  • Structural Health Monitoring (SHM): machine learning and pattern recognition techniques for data analysis, structural damage characterisation and non-destructive evaluation methods.
  • Onshore and offshore wind farms, sustainable energy systems.
  • Data analysis and information learning tools.
  • Nonlinear dynamics and advanced signal processing.
