Dr Stavros Kassinos is Professor in the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering at the University of Cyprus and the Head of the Computational Sciences Laboratory at the University of Cyprus (UCY-CompSci). He serves on the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Heat and Fluid Flow and is the Chair of COST Action MP1404 – Simulation and pharmaceutical technologies for advanced patient-tailored inhaled medicines (SimInhale). He completed his undergraduate studies at the University of Texas at Austin while on a CASP/USIA scholarship (1987) followed by graduate studies in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University in California (M.Sc. 1989, Ph.D. 1995). His research interests center on the numerical simulation and modeling of complex physical systems including turbulent fluid-particle flows in connection with environmental, biomedical and technological applications. In particular, he is interested in the further development of in silico methods in support of inhaled drug development.
