Prof. Kyriakos C. Giannakoglou

Training Coordinator of the MeDiTATe project

Academic Supervisor of ESR 04, ESR 05 and ESR 06. His research interests include development of CFD-based analysis and optimization methods for internal and external fluid mechanics/aerodynamics, incl. adjoint & evolutionary algorithms. He is also involved in the analysis and optimization of multi-disciplinary (aerothermal, aeroacoustic, aerostructural) applications. His research group has developed the publicly available continuous adjoint for shape optimization in the OpenFOAM environment.
This experience will be used to train and support ESRs who will program CFD software on GPUs and use it for minimizing the wall-clock time of the undertaken simulations. He has participated in numerous scientific and technological projects funded by the European and Asian industry, as well as the EU. He is participating in seven ITNs (AboutFlow, IODA, SmartAnswer, zEPHYR, Meditate, BLESSED, MFLOPS). He has supervised 26 PhDs (accomplished) and 12 more are now running (some of these PhD students are simultaneously working in European companies; this is a good proof of his experience on how to handle PhD students in collaboration with an industrial advisor).

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 859836
