Research Director, Mechanical Engineer

Dr. Panagiotis Neofytou holds a Research Director post in the National Centre for Scientific Research “Demokritos” and is acting head of the Thermal Hydraulics and Multiphase Flow Laboratory (THEM-Lab).

He obtained his undergraduate degree from the Department of Mechanical Engineering at National Technical University of Athens and subsequently studied for his PhD in the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).

In 2002 he joined the Institute of Nuclear Technology & Radiation Protection and is since actively engaged in the coordination and implementation of EU and domestically funded projects.

Over the past 20 years he has specialised in the development and application of advanced computational algorithms mainly for modelling of non-Newtonian fluid dynamics for physiological flows. He participated in several European research projects such as ROSE, OSCAR, REVEAL, HENVINET, NANEX, EC4SAFENANO and NanoinformaTIX.

He was Principal Investigator of European research projects SCAFFOLD, MIFIS and project DEKA funded by the General Secretariat for Research and Technology with an overall budget of 350 thousand euros.

He has a record of more than 60 publications in refereed international journals and international conference proceedings and is a member of the “Virtual Physiological Human” Network of Excellence.
