Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Cyprus and the Head of the Computational Sciences Laboratory at the University of Cyrpus (UCY-CompSci)

Prof. Stavros Kassinos completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin while on a CASP/USIA scholarship. He followed with graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University in California (M.Sc. 1989, Ph.D. 1995). He continued to work in the Mechanical Engineering Department at Stanford University as a Postdoctoral Fellow till 1997, when he joined the Research Staff at the Stanford/NASA-Ames Center for Turbulence Research (CTR). Between 1999 and 2003 he also held a joint appointment at the Center for Integrated Turbulence Simulations (CITS) at Stanford University. He is currently a Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Cyprus and the Head of the Computational Sciences Laboratory at the University of Cyrpus (UCY-CompSci). His research interests center on the numerical simulation and modeling of complex physical systems including turbulent fluid flow in connection with environmental, biomedical and technological applications. In parallel, he has developed a particular interest in nanofluidic systems for biomedical and environmental applications.  He serves on the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Heat and Fluid Flow and is the Chair of COST Action MP1404 – “SimInhale”.
