Welcome to my page -- I am Charalampos P. Andriotis, Assistant Professor of Artificial Intelligence in Structural Design & Mechanics at TU Delft, directing AiDAPT Lab, TU Delft's AI-Lab for Design, Analysis, and Optimization in the Faculty of Architecture & the Built Environment. My group's research is on decision-making under uncertainty for life-cycle control of engineering systems and infrastructure. Within this line of research, we focus on prediction, inference, learning, and optimization methodologies supporting resilient and autonomous planning against deterioration and hazards. Computational and theoretical themes that underpin this research include structural mechanics, uncertainty quantification, systems risk and reliability, and stochastic optimal control, especially as these emerge at the confluence of structural engineering and data science. Applications of interest to our research lie in the broader areas of performance-based engineering; stochastic modeling of structures subject to multiple stressors; life-cycle assessment and optimization; risk mitigation planning; value of information quantification; and infrastructure resilience. Shaping novel algorithmic approaches in AI and machine learning, our efforts are motivated by bridging physics-based engineering with data-driven intelligence, towards new paradigms, able to meet the complex decision-making challenges posed by the dynamically changing, expanding, and intertwining urban, natural, and digital environments, at large, real-world scales.
