Background

I graduated from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with a diploma in Chemical Engineering. My main background is modelling, simulation, optimisation of chemical processes, transfer phenomena and techno economic feasibility studies. My fifth-year diploma thesis was on Modelling, Simulation and Optimisation of chemotherapy treatment on patients with Acute Myeloid Leukaemia. After graduating, I completed a six-month training programme organised by LyondellBasell and the University of Sapienza, where I studied the fluid dynamics of a gas-phase reactor that produces PE and I completed my thesis on Modelling of PE discharge from a Gas Phase Reactor with minimum gas entrainment.

Research Interests

My main research interests involve the study of fluid dynamics in reactors that involve chemical processes, organs in the human body, decontamination and pollution.

Why I chose the CDT in Fluid Dynamics

One of the main reasons for my decision to apply for the CDT in Fluid Dynamics was the integrated MSc, which will give me the opportunity to get to know different areas of interest regarding Fluid Dynamics, before I choose my PhD project. Moreover, this year will provide me the necessary knowledge to begin my research as a PhD student.
