Personal Statement

Personal web site: www.drikakis.com

Prof. Dimitris Drikakis is Associate Principal & Executive Dean (Engineering) as well as Professor of Engineering Science. He joined Strathclyde in July 2015.  He was previously Head of the Institute of Aerospace Sciences and Director of Research of the School of Aerospace, Transport and Manufacturing at Cranfield University. Prior to his position at Cranfield University, Professor Drikakis held positions at Queen Mary University of London, the University of Manchester and the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany.

Prof. Drikakis expertise is in fluid mechanics, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) and nanotechnology (fluid/material interface). He is active in both fundamental and applied research, including technology transfer to industry and research establishments.

He has received twice (2008 and 2011) the William Penney Fellowship Award by
AWE Plc in recognition of his contributions to compressible fluid dynamics.

Prof Drikakis also received the 2014 Innovator of the Year Award by the Innovation Institute for a new generation carbon capture technology that uses carbon nanotubes for filtering out carbon dioxide and other gases at low or zero energy cost. This platform technology has the potential to be used across a wide range of applications in the power generation, automotive, aerospace, chemical, marine and built environment sectors.

The Faculty of Engineering is on an upward path of continued success and Prof Drikakis's vision is to build on the existing strengths and successes - making a significant contribution to further grow the activities and strengthen the Faculty’s standing nationally and internationally.
