Dr. E. (Eleonora) Papadimitriou


Eleonora Papadimitriou is Assistant Professor (since 2018) with the Safety and Security Science Section of the Faculty of Technology, Policy, and Management. She holds a Civil / Transportation Engineering diploma from the National Technical University of Athens (2001), a MSc in Transport from the Ecole des Ponts ParisTech (2003) and a PhD degree (2010) in Transport Safety.


Eleonora’s research interests lie in transport safety, risk assessment and modelling, user behaviour with emphasis on vulnerable road users, infrastructure safety management and efficiency assessment. She has more than 17 years of research experience mostly within international research projects of the European Commission and other international organisations (e.g. OECD/ITF, WHO, UNECE, CEDR).
