Dr. Lambros Kaiktsis, an Associate Professor at the Department of Naval Architecture & Marine Engineering of the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), is currently on a sabbatical leave with the Department of Mechanical Engineering of Khalifa University. His doctoral work at ETH-Zurich was on instability and transition to turbulence in separated flows. After spending three more years as a Research Scientist at ETH-Zurich, where he worked on the simulation of complex flow and combustion applications in super- and parallel computing environments, he worked as a consultant to the marine Diesel engine industry (Wärtsilä Switzerland), performing CFD modeling for large two-stroke marine Diesel engines. At NTUA, he was the coordinator of several research projects in the area of Marine Engineering. His research work, published in esteemed journals and conference proceedings, has received over 400 citations. He is a reviewer of 15 Journals in the fields of fluids mechanics, internal combustion engines and combustion, and an Area Editor of the Journal “Simulation Modelling Practice and Theory”.
