About

Background

Dr Mitroglou graduated from the department of mechanical engineering of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 1999 and obtained his PhD from School of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (SEMS) of City University London in 2006 in the area of laser diagnostics in fuel sprays. He then performed post-doctoral research at City, sponsored initially by Toyota Motor Company, Japan and then Delphi Diesel Systems on cavitation in real-size transparent nozzle tips. In 2011 he was awarded an IOF Marie-Currie fellowship jointly between City University London and Stony Brook University New York in the US to perform research on fuel additives and cavitation; he was promoted to lecturer at SEMS in 2013.
