Professor (full) of Applied Mathematics in Fluid Mechanics

Dr. Efstratios Tzirtzilakis is serving as a full Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of the Peloponnese, Greece. He is also Vice Rector for Finance and Electronic Governance of UoP. He has also served as head of the Mechanical Engineering Department during the academic years 2019-2021. He has a degree in Mathematics, an MSc in Applied Mathematics, and a PhD in Biomagnetic Fluid Dynamics (BFD). His research field lies in Computational Fluid Mechanics and especially BFD, ferrofluid and MagnetoHydroDynamic flows. He has published in mathematical formulation of BFD flow problems, numerical methods for the solution of fluid mechanics problems, internal and boundary layer flows with heat and mass transfer, analytic solutions and generally, in the research area of applied mathematics.

He is author or co-author of more than 60 papers in international refereed journals with more than 1800 references from other researchers. He is referee for more than 50 international journals and reviewer of the American Mathematical Society. He is also member of the Editorial Board of the “Mathematical Problems in Engineering” (JSR IF 1.430) and “Mathematics” (JSR IF 2.592) International Journals.  He has given lectures in several conferences and has been invited to give a lecture at the University of Cambridge. He is an expert in BFD flows and two of his publications were selected for the “Virtual Journal of Biological Physics Research”, where the papers published are reviewed for second time by a different editor and considered to constitute frontier research. He has also included four times in the database «Data for Updated science–wide author databases of standardized citation indicators», which includes the top 2% of the researchers worldwide with respect the number of citations in a specific area of research. For the years 2020, 2021 and 2023 in the research area “Mechanical Engineering & Transports, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics & Statistics” and in 2022 in the area “Mechanical Engineering & Transports, Engineering, Fluids & Plasmas”. In the past he has received scholarships from the Greek State Scholarship Foundation during his graduate and post-doctoral studies.
