Mr. Andrianakis Michalis
Technical Scientist

Michalis Andrianakis is an Electrical Engineer, graduated of the Hellenic Mediterranean University of Crete (HelMedU), holding an MSc degree in “Advanced automation system and robotics”. Since 2010, he has been working at IESL-FORTH. His main tasks include the development of electronic and optical systems, imaging, and systems control software. He has conducted numerous measurement campaigns in Greece and around Europe employing a mobile Digital Holographic Interferometry instrument for in-situ, non-destructive survey of museum objects and monuments in the context of several mobile access investigations supported through the IPERION-CH and POLITEIA-I projects or provided on a service basis.

He has actively participated in major national and EU projects at IESL-FORTH including IPERION-HS, HELLAS-CH, POLITEIA-I and II, IPERION-CH, Climate for Culture, CHARISMA, SYDARTA.
