Background

Christos studied Mechanical Engineering from 2013, with specialization in Aerospace & ICEs (Integrated MEng) at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in Thessaloniki, Greece. He graduated magna cum laude in 2020.

In 2019, Christos worked as a Research Assistant in Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), studying high-order LES Computational Fluid Dynamics and hybrid aeroacoustic models, under the supervision of prof. Ghader Ghorbaniasl. Based on his research, he wrote his Master's Thesis on Broadband Noise modelling using LES, under the supervision of profs. Anestis Kalfas (AUTh) and Ghader Ghorbaniasl (VUB).

Christos has a strong interest in engineering technology impact on the environment. He is fascinated by (aero)acoustics and thermo-fluid dynamics.  His work so far has included experiments, computational modelling and he has a strong affinity for model development and coding.


Current activities

Christos' current activities revolve around acoustic emissions and thermodynamic-aeroacoustic optimization and modelling. He is currently undertaking his PhD on Acoustics and Emissions Optimization for SuperSonic Transport (SST) aeroengines, under the supervision of prof. Vassilios Pachidis and Dr. Craig Lawson at the Rolls Royce UTC of Cranfield University. 

His Doctoral project is funded in the context of SENECA Project (H2020 Grant No. 101006742). Partners of the project include Rolls Royce plc, MTU Aero Engines, DLR, NLR, ONERA and others. His research includes supersonic engine cycle modelling/optimization for emissions and acoustics for conceptual designs of business and commercial supersonic jets.
