I am currently working as Full Professor in Energy Engineering within the Future Energy Center at MDH focused on Modelling and Optimization of Energy Systems. I am concurrently affiliated with Cranfield University as a scholar within the Centre of Propulsion. I am also an Oavlönad Docent in Aero-Engine Conceptual Design and Analysis at Chalmers University of Technology. I hold a PhD in Gas Turbine Engineering from Cranfield University and a Dipl-Ing in Mechanical Engineering from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I am the author of EVA, a complex state-of-the-art code for engine/aircraft performance prediction and multi-disciplinary conceptual design. I have received several distinctions for my research including the American Society of Mechanical Engineers “Cycle Innovations Committee Best Paper Award” and the Cranfield University School of Engineering “Arthur Lefebvre Prize”. I am a professional engineer (PEng) and a chartered engineer (CEng) as well as a member of several engineering institutions in Europe and North America. Earlier in my career, I worked as Principal Performance Enginneer and TP400 Steady-State Performance Focal Point at Rolls-Royce Defence (Aerospace) in Bristol. I have also lectured and conducted research at Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden and Cranfield University in the United Kingdom. I led the team of experienced researchers from across different European universities assigned to the development of TERA2020 (Techno-economic, Environmental and Risk Assessment for 2020). TERA2020 was a university-led and industry-supported multidisciplinary aero engine conceptual design tool developed for over 10 years under the auspices of EU Framework 6 and 7 projects VITAL, NEWAC, DREAM and LEMCOTEC. Working as the leader of the TERA2020 team gave me the rare opportunity to establish close relationships with technical experts from Rolls-Royce UK, Rolls-Royce Deutschland, GKN Aerospace, MTU Aero Engines, Snecma, AVIO, Turbomeca and Airbus.
