Angelos M. Efstathiou received his Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering (Heterogeneous Catalysis) from the University of Connecticut (USA) in 1989, where he investigated the production of fuels from synthesis gas (CO/H2 gas mixtures) over supported Rh catalysts, and in particular the mechanism of this reaction using advanced transient isotopic methods. He became Assistant Research Professor at the Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes (ICE/HT-FORTH), Patras-Greece in 1994, and Assistant Professor at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Cyprus in 1997. Since 2008 he is full Professor at the Department of Chemistry, University of Cyprus. He is Vice Dean of the School of Pure and Applied Sciences at the University of Cyprus. He is member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Applied Catalysis B: Environmental Journal, National Representative of the European Program COST: Chemistry and Molecular Sciences and Technology – CMST, and representative of the Greek Catalysis Society in the European Federation of Catalysis Societies (EFCATS). He is one of the three Finalist of "Royal Award for Sustainable Technology Transfer 2008", COPENMIND (2008, Copenhagen), European Environment Agency - Novel Selective Catalytic Reduction of NOx Using Hydrogen in Strongly Oxidizing Conditions at Low-Temperatures for Stationary NOx Control. He is also the recipient of the first research award “Nikos Symeonides - 2007”, Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation. His current interests concern the development of novel and green heterogeneous catalytic technologies for industrial NOx control and the production of hydrogen, and the in-depth understanding of mechanisms of heterogeneous catalytic reactions using in situ advanced transient isotopic and spectroscopic techniques. He authored more than 115 publications in refereed international journals, 4 patents and 2 invited book chapters.
