Souflas Konstantinos is a Research Engineer specializing in the reacting and non-reacting laminar and turbulent flows. His research has been mainly focused on the characterization of stratified, bluff body, stabilized flames under a range of inlet mixture temperatures and the estimation of fundamental laminar flame properties via optical measurements. Moreover, his research field includes the investigation of flame stabilization characteristics, pollutant emissions and combustion efficiency. He has also participated in national and international scientific projects and in the co-authoring and translation supervision of academic books.
