Short CV

Nikolaos A. Diangelakis is an Assistant Professor at the School of Chemical and Environmental Engineering of the Technical University of Crete. Prior to that, he was a Lead Optimisation Engineer ta Octeract Ltd. (2019-2021) and a Post-doctoral research associate at the Texas A&M University and Texas A&M Energy Institute (2017-2019). He holds a Ph.D. at Chemical Engineering from Imperial College London (2013-2017) and has been a member of the Multi-parametric Optimization and Control Group since 2011. He acquired his MS.C. in Advanced Chemical Engineering from Imperial College (2012) and his Diploma in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens (2011). His research interests lie in the areas of rolling horizon optimization (incl. model based control), non-linear optimization data-based optimization and optimization under uncertainty.

He is one of the main developers of the PARametric Optimization and Control (PAROC) software toolbox and the Parametric OPtimization (POP) software tool. He is a Co-Investigator for the Seminal Action “SAFE-AORTA: Clinical Decision Support System for Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Disease Based on Artificial Intelligence Models” (GSRI, 2023).

He has actively participated in the proposal preparation and research projects with the US Department of Energy (2018), the National Science Foundation (2015-2016) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (2013-2014). In 2017 he got the 3rd  place for the “Excellence Award in Recognition of Outstanding PhD Thesis on CAPE” and in 2016 he was one of the invited speakers in the Distinguished Junior Researcher Seminar Series of Northwestern University.

He has authored and co-authored 21 peer-reviewed articles, 16 conference proceedings, 3 book chapters and 2 books. Last but not least, he has been a member of the editorial board for the “Energy Systems” section of the Processes journal (MDPI) and a guest editor for thespecial issue “10th Anniversary of Processes: Recent Advances in the Optimisation and Control of Integrated Energy Systems and Energy Markets” of the same journal.
