Dr. Philip Azariadis is a Professor with the Department of Product & Systems Design Engineering at the University of the Aegean. He holds a Mathematics degree from the Department of Mathematics (1994) and a Ph.D. from the Department of Mechanical Engineering & Aeronautics (1999) of the University of Patras. He has served at various faculty positions at the Department of Product & Systems Design Engineering since 2002. Between May 2001 and June 2005, he worked as an R&D coordinator at ELKEDE – Technology & Design Centre, while between July 2005 and December 2010, he was an external collaborator at the above institute focusing on European R&D projects. During 2011-2012 and 2014 he has served as a Tutor at the Hellenic Open University.
His research activities are focused in the areas of Product Design (Computer-Aided Design, 3D Modeling for engineers), Reverse Engineering, Motion Design, Routing/Scheduling and Computer Graphics. His research work has found industrial applications in the footwear, garment and jewelry industries and has been published in leading scientific journals and conferences like Computer-Aided Design, Computers in Industry, The Visual Computer, Robotics and Autonomous Systems, Computing, Eurographics Conference, CAD Conference.
He has been involved as a researcher or scientific coordinator in numerous European or National R&D projects and served as a reviewer in 37 international journals, in more than 135 international conferences and in several international and national founding organisations. He has been member of the international programme committee of more than 100 international conferences, and he is member of the editorial board of 3 international journals.
Currently, Dr. Azariadis, is Head of the Department of Product & Systems Design Engineering, Director of the M.Sc. Program “Integrated Product Design and Innovation” and Head of the “Integrated Industrial Design Lab” at the University of the Aegean.
