After obtaining his PhD degree from the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Dept. of UCLA in 1986, Dr. Dimitris Goussis joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University as a Research Staff until 1991. He then returned to Greece, where he joined the faculty of the Mechanical Engineering Dept. at the University of Patras and then the faculty of the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens, where he serves as a Professor in the Mechanics Section.
The major focus of his work is the development of algorithmic methodologies for the acquisition of the essential physical understanding, by analyzing mathematical models that simulate physical phenomena, with applications in the fields of combustion, biology, pharmacokinetics and mechanics. He is a member of the organizing committees of the Int. Conference on Numerical Combustion and of the Int. Workshop on Model Reduction in Reacting Flows. He has participated in a number of research projects funded by the European Commission. He has been invited to present a number of plenary lectures and departmental seminars.
