                                          CaSToRC - HPC National Competence Centre invites you to the  EuroCC and SimEA seminar series


The computation-based science and technology research center (CaSToRC) has recently become a National Competence Center in HPC and the host of the prestigious SimEA ERA Chair project that aims to expand the research activities of the center and forge innovative collaborations with industry.

In this talk, Christodoulos, the Innovation Scout of SimEA, will talk about the Management and Innovation Office (MIO) established at CaSToRC, as a structural change aiming to promote the innovation strategy of the center. He will also talk about the core competences of the SimEA team and of CaSToRC, and how the industrial and governmental sector can use HPC to achieve breakthroughs in areas like energy and environment, design of novel materials, digitalization of industry, circular economy, oil and gas production, medicine, and financial risk assessment.


About the Speaker

christos christodoulouDr. Christodoulos Christodoulou is the Managing Coordinator of the SimEA project. Christos completed his Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Physical Natural Sciences at the University of Cambridge, UK. He then moved to Tüebingen, Germany where he worked as a research assistant at the Hertie Institute for brain research.

Thereafter, he pursued a PhD in solid-state physics at Humboldt University in Berlin under the supervision of Prof. Norbert Koch. His PhD focused on the interaction between graphene and organic molecules. He then worked as a Postdoctoral researcher at Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin (HZB), where he coordinated a bilateral European project and studied the characteristics of novel organic solar cells.

Christodoulos transitioned to industry, starting as a Data Engineer at Motionlogic GmbH (Deutsche Telekom), building distributed algorithms using spatiotemporal data. He then led a research and development team at the same company. Finally, he worked as an engineering manager, leading a team of data scientists, analysts and software engineers. He acted as engineering/product manager and relationship manager.
