George Mylonakis specializes in geotechnical earthquake engineering, computational geomechanics, and dynamic soil-structure interaction with emphasis on pile-supported structures. Before joining University of Patras (2004), he worked as Associate Professor with Tenure at the City University of New York (2002-2004), Assistant Professor at the same institution (1997-2001), and Post-Doctoral Scientist at SUNY-Buffalo and the National Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (NCEER) (1996-1997).

He is the recipient of the Shamsher Prakash International Research Award (2002), (youngest recipient in the history of the award), the City University of New York’s Performance Excellence Award (1999), and a Nominee for the 2001 Best Paper Award by the Japanese Geotechnical Society (2001).

He has served as Coordinator, Researcher, and Reviewer in several research projects sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Multidisciplinary Center for Earthquake Engineering Research (MCEER), the Shimizu Corporation, the General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT), among others.

Over the past ten years, Dr. Mylonakis has authored or co-authored approximately 100 scientific publications (over 30 in peer-reviewed international journals), delivered over 30 invited talks around the world, and refereed for 26 International Journals. He is currently serving as Editorial Board Member in the Journal of Geotechnical and Geoenvironmental Engineering, ASCE, Guest Editor in Soil Dynamics and Earthquake Engineering Journal and elected member of the National Soil Dynamics Committee of ASCE. He is member of several professional associations including ASCE, EERI, JGE, GRACM and a registered professional engineer in Greece.
