Curriculum Vitae

Short CV - Research interests
Prof. Tsiakaras received his 5-years Diploma on 1984 and his 2-years MSc on 1987, both from the Dept of Industrial Chemistry - University of Messina (Italy). 
On 1992 he awarded with the Eurodoct price and the same year he defended his PhD at the Dept of Chemical Engineering of the University of Patras (GR). Two years later (1994), after his post-doctoral studies in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), Twente (Holland) and Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (GR), he was appointed at the Dept of Mechanical Engineering, University of Thessaly. 
Prof. Tsiakaras received for his studies Scholarships from Greek, Italian & Belgium research Institutions. On 1996 he founded the laboratory of Alternative Energy Conversion Systems (Greece) and on 2012 the Laboratory of Electrochemical Devices based on Solid Oxide Proton Electrolytes at the Institute of High Temperature Electrochemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Ekaterinburg Russian Federation. 
On 2017 he was awarded with Ecopolis price for his overall scientific work. Prof. Tsiakaras has been visiting Professor: i) at the Department of Industrial Chemistry & Materials Engineering of the University of Messina-Italy (period May-July of 2010), ii) at the National Council of Research (CNR-ITAE), Italy (period April-June 2014 and June 2018) and iii) at the department of Chemical Engineering of the Ural Federal University, Russia (2017-2019).
