Prof Asterios Gavriilidis
Roberts 306B
Dept of Chemical Engineering
Torrington Place
  • Professor of Chemical Reaction Engineering
  • Dept of Chemical Engineering
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Asterios Gavriilidis obtained a Diploma from the University of Thessaloniki, Greece in 1988, and an MSc in 1990 and PhD in 1993 from the University of Notre Dame, USA, all in Chemical Engineering. He joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at University College London in 1993, where he has been professor of Chemical Reaction Engineering since 2004. He is subject editor of chemical reaction engineering for Chemical Engineering Research and Design, Fellow of the IChemE, Chartered Engineer, and UK representative in the Working Party of Chemical Reaction Engineering of the European Federation of Chemical Engineers (EFChE). He is serving in the Scientific Committee of the IMRET (International Conference on Microreaction Technology) series of conferences as well as other international conferences in the fields of chemical reaction engineering and process intensification.He is a member of the Steering Group of the Dial-a-Molecule network and he is co-I and Steering Group member of the UK Catalysis Hub.

Research Themes
Research Summary

Pro Gavriilidis' expertise is on chemical and catalytic reaction engineering, and over the last ten years he has specialised in the area of flow microreaction technology. His group has worked on the design, development and evaluation of high temperature gas phase and low temperature multiphase microstructured reactors, using in addition to experimental approaches various modelling tools, such as CFD simulations. The reactors have been used to perform various types of reactions including catalytic oxidations, hydrogenations, epoxidations, ozonolysis etc. Some highlights of the group’s research are: studies on design and fabrication of zeolite-based microstructured reactors for liquid phase reactions, studies on catalytic falling film microstructured reactors for hydrogenation reactions; demonstration of microfabricated reactors for in situ Raman and EXAFS measurements during gas phase catalysis.
