Dr Christos Markides

Lecturer in Clean Energy Processes in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. Within UNIHEAT, Dr Christos N. Markides is the leader for sub-project 7 “High-efficiency heat recovery, re-use and/or conversion to power; Advanced (optical) spatio-temporally resolved fluid flow & heat transfer diagnostics”. His research interests include:

 - Advanced diagnostics: high resolution intrusive and non-intrusive (optical laser-based) techniques for the measurement for velocity, turbulence, species, concentration, phase distribution, temperature and heat flux with Particle Image Velocimetry (PIV), Particle Tracking Velocimetry (PTV), Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) and related techniques

 - Efficient utilization of low grade (solar and waste) heat and novel heat integration

 - Thermodynamics of and heat transfer effects in unsteady devices, machines and heat exchangers

 - Turbulence and mixing

 - Heat and fluid flows in the urban environment

 - Autoignition, combustion and post-ignition flame propagation phenomena

 - Gasification of heavy oil and coal and syngas production

 - Novel bioreactor design and bioreactor characterisation

 - Characterisation of physiological flows
