Dr. Vassilis Charitopoulos is a Lecturer (2019-) in the Department of Chemical Engineering, CPSE at UCL and an Associate Researcher at the Energy Policy Research Group at Cambridge Judge Business School. He specialises in developing mathematical programming models and solutions techniques for incorporating uncertainty considerations for process and energy systems engineering problems. Dr. Charitopoulos has received global recognition for his excellent research activity including: UCL Rooke Prize (2016), IChemE Best Young Researcher finalist (2018; 2019; 2020), Springer Thesis Award (2019), UCL David Newton Prize (2019). He was the recipient of an Early Career Fellowship (2019) from the Isaac Newton Trust, University of Cambridge for a project related to the stochastic optimisation of heat decarbonisation pathways in the UK. His current research focuses on the development of novel techniques for model-based and data-driven optimisation frameworks for digital process manufacturing and industrial heat decarbonisation with demand side response considerations.
