Imperial College London

Mr. Georgios Deskos is a PhD student in the Applied Modelling and Computational Group in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering at Imperial College London (ICL). He holds an MSc in Civil Engineering from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in the USA and an MEng in Civil Engineering from National Technical University of Athens in Greece. Prior to starting his PhD, he worked as a Research Assistant in the Department of Civil Engineering at Imperial College London, working on wavestructure interaction problems. As part of his PhD research, G. Deskos has developed and validated a turbine parametrisation model (actuator line model) within the high-order numerical code Incompact3d and the meshadaptive finite-element solver fluidity, and uses both tools to simulate large-scale offshore and onshore wind turbine wakes under neutrally stable atmospheric boundary layer (ABL) conditions.
