Past Experience

  • Post Doc researcher
    March 2012 --- December 2014
    • Participation in the EU FP7 OCMOL project (Oxidative Coupling of Methane followed by Oligomerization to Liquids, Main activities in the framework of OCMOL project (UGENT was coordinator): - Experimental investigation and micro-kinetic modelling of OCM : Manipulation of a test rig, dedicated to heterogeneous catalytic reactions (such as OCM), capable of measuring intrinsic kinetics and operating at temperatures that reach up to 900 0C and pressures up to 20 bar. Investigation of the effect of catalytic bed and operation parameters (catalyst class, nature of diluent material, temperature, pressure, inlet methane to oxygen ratio, space time, feed dilution etc.) on catalyst performance. Manipulation and development of a comprehensive micro-kinetic model, including catalyst descriptors that accounts for homogeneous and heterogeneous reaction steps in OCM. Employment of the model for the assessment of large kinetic datasets acquired on different catalysts. Interpretation of the effect of several parameters (temperature, pressure, Volume-to-Surface ratio etc.) on OCM performance by using the model. Manipulation of an OCM global kinetic model, including pre-exponential factors and activation energies as model parameters and validation with experimental datasets. . - Provision of Sub-project (SP) leadership related to non-Scientific/Technologic activities of OCMOL project : dissemination & communication, training activities and exploitation of outputs. Also, responsible for the update of the OCMOL website,, and the creation of the OCMOL video. - Compilation of deliverables (scientific and non-scientific), summaries of various SPs and technical reports, giving presentations at the regular OCMOL meetings and administration activities. • Coaching M.Sc. students and junior scientists on heterogeneous catalysis experimentation, modelling and simulation

  • scientific collaborator
    January 2011 --- June 2011
    Participation in the INTERVALUE project of South East Europe for the valorization of R&D results of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Valorization plans carried out by Vaios Alexiadis : - Efficient electrochemical removal of nitrate and nitrite from low level nuclear wastewaters, - WebGIS server, - Mapping & digitize of soil and land use maps, - Efficient Material for in-situ capture of Carbon Dioxide in Hydrogen production process via methane steam reforming, - Highly active and selective Ni-Nb-O mixed oxide catalysts for the efficient production of ethylene via ethane oxidative dehydrogenation, - Bromate Determination in Water Using Chlorpromazine after Correction of Chlorinating Agents and Humic Substances Interference, - Preparation and study of coagulation properties of innovative reagents and their applications in environmental protection, - Educating Autistic Children by Using New Technologies,
