- Papadopoulos Policarpos
Academic position: Associate Professor
Papadopoulos Polycarpos was born in Athens, Greece in 1978. In 2000 he graduated from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics of the University of Patras. In 2004 he received his Ph.D. degree from the Department of Engineering Sciences of the University of Patras (Ph.D. thesis: “Investigation of internal, incompressible, laminar hydrodynamic and thermal flow using the improved CVP method and the SIMPLE method”, supervisor: P. Hatzikonstantinou). He worked as a self-employed Mechanical Engineer from 2005 to 2007 and from April 2008 to September 2013 he took up a post as Lecturer at the Department of Engineering Sciences of the University of Patras. In September 2013 he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautics of the University of Patras. He has 15 publications in peer-reviewed international journals, 10 conference presentations and has served as a reviewer in 11 peer-reviewed international journals Computational Fluid Dynamics and Heat Transfer, Ferrohydrodynamics, Biofluid Mechanics, Numerical Methods, Electromagnetics.
