Dipl. Eng. in Mech. Eng. (First Class Honors), University of Patras (1981), PhD, DIC in Mech. Eng., Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine (London, 1985). Scholarships/Grants from Technical Chamber of Greece (TCG, 1977), Rolls-Royce plc (U.K, 1982). Awards from, TCG (1981), Inst. of Mechanical Engineers (U.K, 1989). He has worked as Research/Senior Research Assistant at Fluids Section, Imperial College (1981-90) and as Lecturer (1991-93), Assistant Professor (1993-99), Associate Professor (1999-present) at the Dept. of Mech. & Aero. Eng., University of Patras. He is Director of the Laboratory of Applied Thermodynamics (2001-present) and has served as Director of the Energy, Environment and Aeronautics Section (2002-03), Dept of Mech. & Aero. Eng., University of Patras.
His teaching and research interests lie in the field of Experimental and Computational Fluid Mechanics, Heat Transfer and Combustion with emphasis on turbulent reacting flows, combustion and aerothermodynamics of IC engines, combustion noise/instabilities/emissions/kinetics with funding and support from the European Community, the Greek Secretariat for Research and Technology, the local industry and the University funds. He has served as reviewer in international journals and has published over sixty articles and conference proceedings papers.
