Dr. Daskalakis Evangelos is Assistant Professor in the Department of Environmental Science and Technology at the Cyprus University of Technology (CUT). He is the leader of the Computational Environmental Modeling (CEM) Group with an established state-of-the-art local computational cluster. He completed his Ph.D studies in 2006 on Theoretical and Computational bio-Physics (Density Functional Theory Methodologies). Collaborations included the Supercomputing Center of the National Institutes of Natural Sciences, in Japan. His postdoctoral experience included Molecular Dynamics (MD) and combined Quantum Mechanical/ Molecular Mechanical (QM/MM) Simulations as well as related mathematical data analysis with collaborations including the Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH, 2006-2010) and the Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC, 2008-2009) in Catalonia, Spain. For the MD calculations, the European Grid (EGEE) and FORTH infrastructures were used, with a plethora of CPUs available, while QM/MM calculations were performed at BSC.
