Ioannis received his Diploma in Architectural Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) and continued his studies at Delft University of Technology (TUDelft), graduating with a MSc in Building Technology. There, in an interdisciplinary research environment, he specialized in Structural Mechanics and Design Informatics. During his thesis, he proposed an alternative, geometric topology optimization methodology, in collaboration with Ass. Prof. Andrew Borgart. He later expanded his knowledge of digital fabrication and robotics through the MAS in Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich, working on the robotic fabrication of Catalan vaulting. Prior to his doctoral studies, Ioannis worked as a research assistant at the Block Research Group (BRG) where he was intensively involved in the NEST HiLo shell roof project.
