Dr. Efstratios Tzirtzilakis is serving as a full Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of the Peloponnese, Greece. He is also Vice Rector for Finance and Electronic Governance of UoP. He has also served as head of the Mechanical Engineering Department during the academic years 2019-2021. He has a degree in Mathematics, an MSc in Applied Mathematics, and a PhD in Biomagnetic Fluid Dynamics (BFD). His research field lies in Computational Fluid Mechanics and especially BFD, ferrofluid and MagnetoHydroDynamic flows. He has published in mathematical formulation of BFD flow problems, numerical methods for the solution of fluid mechanics problems, internal and boundary layer flows, analytic solutions and generally, in the research area of applied mathematics.

He is author or co-author of more than 58 papers in international refereed journals with more than 1400 references from other researchers. He is referee for more than 45 international journals and reviewer of the American Mathematical Society. He is also member of the Editorial Board of the ďMathematical Problems in EngineeringĒ (JSR IF 1.430) and ďMathematicsĒ (JSR IF 2.592) International Journals.He has given lectures in several conferences and has been invited to give a lecture at the University of Cambridge. He is an expert in BFD flows and two of his publications were selected for the ďVirtual Journal of Biological Physics ResearchĒ, where the papers published are reviewed for second time by a different editor and considered to constitute frontier research. He has also included three times in the database ęData for Updated scienceĖwide author databases of standardized citation indicatorsĽ, which includes the top 2% of the researchers worldwide with respect the number of citations in a specific area of research. For the years 2020 and 2021 in the research area ďMechanical Engineering & Transports, Applied Mathematics, Mathematics & StatisticsĒ and in 2022 in the area ďMechanical Engineering & Transports, Engineering, Fluids & PlasmasĒ. In the past he has received scholarships from the Greek State Scholarship Foundation during his graduate and post-doctoral studies.
