me

Welcome!


My name is Dimitris Souravlias and I am with the Port of Rotterdam where I work as a data scientist. Prior to that I was a postdoctoral researcher at the Department of Maritime and Transport Technology, Delft University of Technology, Delft, The Netherlands, and the Logistics Management Department, Helmut-Schmidt University, Hamburg, Germany. I hold a PhD from the Department of Computer Science & Engineering, University of Ioannina, Greece. During my PhD studies, I spent two months at the Heuristic and Evolutionary Algorithms Laboratory, University of Applied Sciences Upper Austria, Hagenberg, Austria where I worked as a research intern.
