Dr. Stathopoulos received his Civil Engineering Diploma from the National Technical University of Athens, Greece and both his M.E.Sc. and Ph.D. from the University of Western Ontario. He joined the Centre for Building Studies, Concordia University in 1979. His work in the area of wind engineering and building aerodynamics has received national and international recognition. It forms the basis for wind design of low-rise buildings in the 1980, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2005 and 2010 National Building Code of Canada, and it has been partly included in the 1982 American National Wind Standard (later ASCE 7-88, 93, 95, 98, 02, 05, 10) and in other standards as well. He has served on several ASCE bodies and chaired the Aerodynamics, the Experimental Analysis & Instrumentation, as well as the Wind Effects Committees of SEI / ASCE; he is a past member (Chair in 2000-01) and current Advisor of the Executive Committee of the Aerospace Division of ASCE. He is a member of the Executive Committee (Chair in 2007-present) of the Technical Council of Wind Engineering (TCWE) of ASCE. He received the 2009 Jack E. Cermak Medal of the Engineering Mechanics Institute of ASCE. He has been appointed Editor of the International Journal of Wind Engineering and Industrial Aerodynamics, as well as Editorial Board member of several prestigious journals in his field. Dr. Stathopoulos is a professional engineer registered in Québec, Ontario and in Greece; he is Fellow of the Canadian Academy of Engineering and also Fellow of the American Society of Civil Engineers.
