Dr. Akylas is a specialist in Fluid Mechanics and Mathematical Modeling. Currently, he is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Civil Engineering of the Cyprus University of Technology, where he teaches hydrology and fluid mechanics. His principal research field is theoretical fluid mechanics, with emphasis on both analytical and numerical studies of fluxes in laminar and turbulent flows. Also he is active in studies of subsurface hydraulics, and in experimental and computational studies of water quality and transport phenomena in reservoirs. The study of these challenging flow problems has resulted in publications in a wide range of different research areas (from meteorology to hydraulics and to fundamental fluid mechanics), whilst the attained expertise has led to scientific contributions to numerous research projects. His published work, as an author or co-author, includes 25 refereed papers in refereed international journals and more than 40 papers in edited volumes, refereed conference proceedings and conference presentations, as well as 8 technical reports.
