Constantinos (Kostas) received his BSc in Mathematics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece and his MSc and PhD (1999) in Chemical Engineering from the State university of New York at Buffalo, USA. He then worked as a post-doctoral associate in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Princeton University for 2 years.
He joined UMIST and the Centre for Process Integration in October 2001 and he is currently a Reader in the School of Chemical Engineering and Analytical Science (SCEAS).
He is the Director of Postgraduate Research for SCEAS.
He teaches Process Control to the 3rd and 4th year Undergraduates, Computer Aided Process Design at the MEng and MSc level and Reaction Systems Design at the MSc level.
He has organised and taught Continuing Professional Development courses to industrial delegates, intensive post-graduate course programmes to Universities around the world as well as in-house training workshops for the Industrial Sector.
He has over 70 publications including book contributions, articles in scientific journals and in conference proceedings and he has given a number of invited seminars all over the world. He has served as member of editorial boards and of international scientific committees and also as session chair for a number of International Conferences and Workshops.
His research group focuses on the multi-scale modelling of complex chemical and biochemical systems and processes, with a particular interest in integrated biorefineries for the co-production of fuels and chemicals, microreactors and electrochemical systems such as fuel cells. The development of novel computational methods and model reduction techniques for bridging the gap between different time- and length-scales in order to enhance the simulation, design, optimisation and control capabilities for complex large-scale reaction-transport processes and for microscopic systems is another important research direction providing a suite of enabling technologies to deal wth the above systems of interest. His work has been funded by EPSRC, the European Union (FP5. FP6, FP7), the Royal Society, the National Science Foundation USA, the Air Force Office for Scientific Research USA, Sandia National Laboratories and United Technologies Research Center.
