Chemical Engineer, PhD

Professor Anastasios J. Karabelas holds degrees in Chemical Engineering (Diploma, National Technical University of Athens; MS and PhD, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA). He was employed (1970-1978) as a Senior Research Engineer at the Shell Westhollow Research Center, Houston. Since 1978, as Professor of the Chemical Engineering Department at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, contributed to its development.

He is a founding member of Chemical Process Engineering Research Institute (CPERI), at the Centre for Research and Technology – Hellas (CERTH) in Thessaloniki, heading the Laboratory of Natural Resources and Renewable Energies since 1985. His research interests include multiphase flow processes, colloidal systems and membrane separations, with applications to process equipment design and water treatment (desalination, purification).

He has coordinated many R&D projects, supervised numerous theses and published over 200 peer-reviewed papers. He has organized several international and national scientific events. Professor Karabelas has served in various technical and science policy committees in Greece and abroad, including the Board of Governors of the Joint Research Centre of European Union (1984-1991) representing Greece.

Chemical Engineer, PhD

Dimitrios C. Sioutopoulos has a diploma in Chemical Engineering (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki). In addition he obtained MSc and PhD degrees (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) in Chemical Engineering.

Working since 2002 on R&D topics related to water desalination, industrial water treatment and reuse as well as recovery of valuable compounds from wastewater streams.

His main research interests include advanced membrane separation processes for water desalination, wastewater reuse as well as techniques for organic and colloidal membrane fouling mitigation and characterization of thin organic layers. His research activities resulted to 15 papers in peer-reviewed scientific journals, papers that have published in conference proceedings, as well as two book chapters. He has been involved in many R&D projects funded by the European Commission, chemical industries and other funding agencies.

Chemical Engineer, PhD

Panagiotis received his Diploma of Chemical Engineer from the Chemical Engineering department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH) in 2011. He obtained his PhD from the same department in 2018, under the supervision of Professor Stergios G. Yiantsios, and since then he is working as a PostDoc Researcher at NRRE.

His main research interests focus on the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) modelling and simulations with parallel processing utilization, specializing in particulate flows, and he has recently been involved in the flow and mass transfer simulations of spiral wound membranes (SWM). He has participated in numerous national and international conferences and his research activities resulted in 2 peer-reviewed scientific papers.
