Grigorios N. Chaidemenopoulos, prior to his current appointment, served as Professor of Physical Metallurgy and Director of the Laboratory of Materials (LoM) at University of Thessaly, Greece since 1992. His research is concerned with processing-structure-properties in metallic materials, dealing with transformation kinetics in TRIP steels, corrosion-induced hydrogen trapping in aluminum alloys and rolling contact fatigue in rails. More recent research focuses on computational alloy and process simulation with applications in the design of homogenization of extrudable aluminum alloys, the design of medium-Mn steels and the thermomechanical process design of HSLA steels. He is the developer of the ALLOYNEERING approach for the computational design of metallic alloys ( In addition to teaching and research, he has provided consulting services to industry in the fields of process design, failure analysis, materials selection and corrosion control. He has served as an expert for the European Commission RFCS and HORIZON 2020 research programs. He has supervised several PhD students and has earned the University of Thessaly's Mechanical Engineering Departmental Best Teaching Award for the years 2007, 2008, 2009, 2011, 2014, and 2015. He is Member of Editorial Board of The Open Corrosion Journal and International Journal of Metallurgical and Materials Engineering. He has published a textbook entitled “Physical Metallurgy: Principles and Design” (CRC Press), 10 book chapters, 70 papers in refereed journals, and presented many keynote and invited lectures worldwide. He received his PhD in Metallurgy, MSc in Metallurgy, and MSc in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering from MIT (USA)..
