Personal profile

Personal profile

My name is Kostas Nizamis, born in 1988 in Kavala, Greece. I am since 2019 an Assistant Professor in Multidisciplinary Design at the Design, Production, & Management (DPM) department at the University of Twente. My educational background includes a Master of Engineering in Electrical and Computer Engineering from Democritus University of Thrace in Xanthi, Greece, followed by a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Twente. I completed my Ph.D. research in Biomechanical Engineering at the same institution.

Through my work, I strive to contribute to the advancement of knowledge and practice in Systems Engineering, with a focus on multidisciplinary technical communication, to aid the development of innovative solutions that positively impact society.

I am currently serving as the vice-secretary of the Optimus Association (https://www.utwente.nl/en/et/dpm/optimus/)  of the DPM department of the University of Twente, and as Director of Transfer for the Non-Profit Organization Authentia (If interested visit our website or our pages on Facebook and LinkedIn!).

Research interests

My research is centered around the application of Systems Engineering (SE) principles, tools, and methodologies across diverse domains, with a particular focus on multidisciplinary projects. These projects encompass a wide spectrum, ranging from the rehabilitation of individuals with impairments to decision-making processes in the high-tech industry, and the effective deployment of industrial robotic automation in various sectors such as cleaning and manufacturing. The intersecting domains of robotic systems and automation, healthcare systems, and high-tech systems serve as the primary focal points of my research vision. By integrating SE practices into these areas, I aim to address complex challenges and drive innovation in the design and implementation of advanced systems, to  Improve Multidisciplinary Communication in Systems Design
