Experience

N. Marmaras is head of the Ergonomics Unit of the Laboratory of Industrial Engineering, and vice-president of the School of Mechanical Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (for the period 2009-2011). He has been also director of the Sector of Industrial Management and Operations Research (2003 - 2007). He is Council member of the International Ergonomics Association (IEA) representing the Hellenic Ergonomics Society, to which he has served as President for many years.

He is editorial board member of the journals (i) International Journal of Human-Computer Interaction, (ii) Theoretical Issues in Ergonomics Science and (iii) International Journal of Industrial Ergonomics, as well as of the books (i) Handbook of Industrial Engineering, (Ed.) G. Salvendy, (New York: John Wiley & Sons) and (ii) International Encyclopaedia of Ergonomics and Human Factors, (Ed.) W. Karwowski, (London: Taylor & Francis, Ltd. Furthermore, he has been member of the Scientific Committee of several International Congresses in the domain of Ergonomics and Cognitive Engineering.

He is certified European Ergonomist. He has conducted several ergonomic interventions, usability studies, and occupational safety & health studies for Greek public and private enterprises.

Research Interests
