Dr. Andreas Yiotis is an Assistant Professor in Petroleum Engineering at the School of Mineral Resources Engineering of the Technical University of Crete, where he teaches Applied Fluid Mechanics, Reservoir and Drilling Engineering at both the undergraduate and post-graduate levels. He is also an Associate Researcher of the Institute of Petroleum Research at FORTH (2019-onwards) and the National Center for Scientific Research “Demokritos” (2012-onwards). He holds a Bachelor (1997) and a PhD (2003) in Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens. From 2010-2012, he worked as a Post-Doctoral Researcher at the French National Center for Research (CNRS, Orsay, France) under an Individual Marie Curie Fellowship for career development. He has been an Invited Researcher at several International Research and Academic Centers, including CNRS (France), Utrecht University (Netherlands), Stuttgart University (Germany), University of Southern California (USA) and Herriot-Watt University (UK). Prof. Yiotis’ research focuses on the development and application of robust numerical modeling methodologies for a wide range of processes of environmental and technological relevance (i.e. oil recovery, soil remediation, H2 storage and fuel cells). He has significant experience in the wider field of modelling transport processes in several classes of permeable materials (soils, membranes and fibrous media), including immiscible flows, evaporative drying, hydrodynamic dispersion, heat and mass transfer. He has published over 30 papers in high-impact peer-review journals (h-index=13 with more than 800 hetero-citations), while also participating in numerous European and National Research Projects.
