Konstantinos Kakosimos

Biography

In the past, he worked as Postdoctoral Research Fellow/Assistant in the Laboratory of Thermophysical Properties and Environmental Processes of Aristotle University, as visiting Research Assistant in the National Environmental Research Institute, Aarhus University Denmark and also as a Design Engineer and Environmental Consultant for a number of private firms (Hellenic Petroleum, Titan Cement Company SA, Hellenic Gold, HYETOS GP etc). On October 2012 he has been appointed Assistant Professor of Chemical Engineering in Texas A&M University at Qatar. During the previous years, he has been involved in many private and public, local and European projects concerning environmental and hazard studies and training.

Research Interest

Dr. Kakosimos’ main research activities are focused on the development and application of the tools needed to improve and sustain the quality of the environment. In 2014, he established the Sustainable Energy and Clean Air Research lab (SECAReLab) with unique facilities for the development and testing of solar-driven chemical processes and the involved equipment and materials. He received the IChemE Hutchison medal for 2015.
