Professor in Cyprus University of Technology
Professor Soteris Kalogirou received his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Glamorgan in 1995. In June 2011 he received from the University of Glamorgan the title of D.Sc. He is Visiting Professor at Brunel University, UK and Adjunct Professor at the Dublin Institute of Technology (DIT), Ireland.
For more than 30 years, he is actively involved in research in the area of solar energy and particularly in flat plate and concentrating collectors, photovoltaics, solar water heating, solar steam generating systems, desalination and absorption cooling. Additionally, since 1995 he is involved in a pioneering research dealing with the use of artificial intelligence methods, like artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms and fuzzy logic, for the modelling and performance prediction of energy and solar energy systems.
He has 48 books and book contributions and published 147 papers in international scientific journals and 173 papers in refereed conference proceedings. Until now, he received more than 9000 citations on this work and his h-index is 48. He is Editor-in-Chief of Renewable Energy and Deputy Editor-in-Chief of Energy, and Editorial Board Member of another eleven journals. He is the editor of the book Artificial Intelligence in Energy and Renewable Energy Systems, published by Nova Science Inc., co-editor of the book Soft Computing in Green and Renewable Energy Systems, published by Springer and author of the books Solar Energy Engineering: Processes and Systems, and Thermal Solar Desalination: Methods and Systems, published by Academic Press of Elsevier.
