After obtaining his Ph.D. degree from the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of UCLA in 1986, Dr. Dimitris Goussis joined the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at Princeton University as a Research Staff until 1991. He then returned to Greece, where he joined the faculty of the Mechanical Engineering Dept. at the University of Patras and then the faculty in the Mechanics Section of the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens. He joined Khalifa University in 2016.
The major focus of Dr. Goussis' work is the development of algorithmic methodologies for the acquisition of the essential physical understanding, by analyzing mathematical models that simulate physical phenomena, with applications in the fields of combustion, biology, pharmacokinetics and mechanics. He has been a member of the organizing committee of the Int. Conference on Numerical Combustion and currently serves in the organizing committee of the Int. Workshop on Model Reduction in Reacting Flows. He has participated in a number of research projects funded by the European Commission.
