Background

Spyros received his 5-year diploma (Integrated MEng) in 2020 from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece. He conducted his Master's Thesis on the performance analysis of a novel engine concept which utilizes hybrid air-breathing rocket cycle technology, under the supervision of Prof Anetsis Kalfas. 

Following his graduation, he worked as a Researcher within "HECARRUS" Project (European Union, Horizon 2020, Research and Innovation Programme "Clean Sky 2") at the Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Turbomachinery (AUTh). His primary role within the project included the conceptual design and analysis of the Thermal Management System (TMS) of a small commuter aircraft utilizing hybrid-electric propulsion architectures, among others.

Spyros has already co-supervised one MEng student at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, under the leading supervision of Prof Anestis Kalfas. 

Current activities

Currently, Spyros is undertaking his PhD on Hypersonic Base Drag within the Cranfield Institute of Technology for Air and Space Propulsion, under the supervision of Prof Vassilios Pachidis, Dr Simon Prince and Dr Ioannis Goulos.
