Yannis Hardalupas
Imperial College London
Professor of Multiphase Flows
Mechanical Engineering Department
London SW7 2AZ, UK

He is Professor of Multiphase Flows at the Mechanical Engineering Department at Imperial
College London. His research covers combustion,heat and mass transfer, liquid atomisation and sprays and the development and application of novel optical and laser diagnostics. The latter led to patents for instruments on powder sizing, planar droplet sizing, nanoparticle sizing and novel imaging devices. His research contributed to gas- and liquid- fuelled land-based gas turbines, coal burners, aeroengines,gasoline and Diesel engines and liquid propellant rocket engines. He also researched spray drying, manufacturing and Cleaning-In-Place processes for the chemical and food industry, dispersion of aerosols with emphasis on infection control, and flow and heat transfer processes, including ‘nanofluids’ as improved coolants for fusion and fission reactors. He is a Fellow of the Institute of Physics and Associate Fellow and member of the technical committee of Propellants and Combustion of the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics. He chaired the Combustion Physics Group
of the Institute of Physics and is an Editor of Experimental Thermal and Fluid Science
and serves at the advisory and editorial boards of Experiments in Fluids and Int. J. of
Spray and Combustion Dynamics.
