Dimitris N. Trakas received the Diploma in Electrical and Computer Engineering and the Master of Sciences degree in Energy Production and Management from the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Athens, Greece, in 2009 and 2011. In 2018, he received the PhD degree on power system resilience assessment and enhancement from the Electric Power Division of NTUA. He has worked in the Research, Innovation and Development Department of IPTO and he has participated to the studies on islands interconnection with the national interconnected transmission system and electricity generation adequacy. He is currently a senior researcher at the Smart Rue research group of NTUA. His research interests include TSO-DSO coordination, resilience assessment, and enhancement of power systems. He is member of IEEE and of the technical chamber of Greece.
