Dr. Alexandros Arsalis is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering, University of Cyprus (UCY). He received undergraduate degrees from HTI, Cyprus (Diploma in Marine Engineering, 1999) and Old Dominion University, USA (B.S. in Mechanical Engineering/minor in Mathematics, Cum Laude honors, 2004), and postgraduate degrees from Virginia Tech, USA (M.S. in Mechanical Engineering, 2007) and Aalborg University, Denmark (Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering, 2011). His Ph.D. study was supported with a fully-funded Ph.D. Fellowship from Aalborg University and the Danish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Academy, and was completed in collaboration with the industry (Danfoss & Dantherm Power). After his studies, he worked as a Postdoc at Aalborg University (2011-2012), and UCY (2013-present). His research interests include: fuel cell systems, renewable energy, exergy analysis, etc. He has developed and applied methods for analysis, evaluation and optimal synthesis, design and operation of novel energy systems (e.g. fuel cells, fuel processors, power plants, heat recovery, cogeneration, solar energy) by combining thermodynamic, economic, and environmental parameters. He has authored more than 20 peer-reviewed papers within Journals and Conference Proceedings and participated in several funded research projects. Since 2014, he is an editorial board member for the Journal of Advanced Thermal Science Research. He has instructed various undergraduate and postgraduate courses and supervised student projects in the broader field of Thermal-Fluids.
