I have been an instructor for the Applied Physics Program in the Whiting School of Engineering since 2009. The only course that I have taught is Chaos and its Applications.
I am also a Professor of Mathematics at the U.S. Naval Academy since 2001. Prior to that, I was a post-doctoral fellow at Clemson University working on Non-Newtonian fluid flow problems in the Center for Advanced Engineering, Fibers and Films.
I received all of my education at the University of Pittsburgh. I started as an undergraduate student in Physics, however, I realized that Mathematics was my true calling early on. My doctoral dissertation was in Computational Fluid Dynamics, specifically in the imposition of various boundary conditions in the Navier-Stokes Equations.
After graduate school, I was employed as a post-doctoral fellow at Clemson University where I broadened my area of expertise in the Non-Newtonian regime of fluids. In 2001, I joined the mathematics department of the US Naval Academy. There, in the next fifteen years I rose to the rank of full professor with tenure. At the Naval Academy, I have served as a member of several committees such as the Admissions Board, the Trident (student project) and Research Award (faculty) committees.
I was born and raised in Greece. My parents and siblings still live there and I try to visit as often as I can. I came to the United States after high school to pursue my studies in Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh. I have been living in the U.S. ever since. My wife, and I live in Severna Park, Maryland.
Finite Element Methods and Numerical Simulation of Newtonian and Viscoelastic fluid flow as well as the study of gas diffusion in nanocomposite films. Currently I am working on simulations of three dimensional, turbulent flow.
