Dr Dimitrios I. Gerogiorgis, a lecturer in Chemical Engineering at the Institute for Materials and Processes (IMP) of the University of Edinburgh, has been awarded the Academy of Athens Loukas Moussoulos Research Publication Excellence Prize, in recognition of his paper entitled "Model-based sensitivity analysis and experimental investigation of perlite grain expansion in a vertical electrical furnace" (Ind. Eng. Chem. Res., 2013), a publication he co-authored while at the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece.
The research focus is on multiscale modelling and simulation of simultaneous microscopic (grain swelling) and macroscopic (furnace operation) phenomena, to ensure process optimisation under uncertainty.
The Loukas Moussoulos Prize is awarded to the best peer-reviewed publication authored by a Greek researcher in the field of metallurgical and mineral resources engineering during the previous two years.
Dr Gerogiorgis has also been recently honoured with a Scottish Crucible membership and grant (2015), as well as with a Royal Society of Edinburgh International Exchange grant (2016).
