ACADEMIC QUALIFICATIONS

WORK EXPERIENCE

OTHER ACADEMIA RELATED INFORMATION

I am a Full Member (Chartered Engineer) in the Chamber of Technology (GR), I have been Associate member in the Soc. of Auto. Engineers (USA), Affiliate member in the Soc. of Mech. Engineers (USA), Graduate member at the Inst. of Mech. Engineers (UK), registered with the Engineering Council (UK), and I have passed the MENSA Challenge.
I have been the principal investigator in three major research grants/contracts and I successfully bid for a fourth one, and I have solely supervised a candidate to PhD completion in Systems Engineering, on the area of computational fluid dynamics and differential geometry. Due to my specialisation being in non-linear/chaotic systems, I have teaching experience in short series of (advanced) courses, lectures and seminars on my subject and tutorials on Maths, FORTRAN and FEA.
I have been personally invited to submit papers to International Symposiums, give seminars to Universities and I have presented papers by other authors and on numerous occasions I have been an external reviewer on the behalf of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers, the Society of Experimental Mechanics and the Journal of Sound and Vibration.

INTERESTS & ACTIVITIES

My interests include research and the appliance of science, with special reference to Chaos, Catastrophe Theory and Hyper spaces.
The philosophy of chaos & Catastrophe, higher dimensions and Hypnotic states and their applications to social and economo-political systems.
My activities include mechanics and rallying of high performance production cars, SCUBA-diving (Rescue Diver), photographic creativity, skiing and finally Pistols & Rifle Target Shooting.
