G. Papadakis graduated from the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering on the National Technical University of Athens in 1990 and received a PhD degree from the same university in 1996. In 1999 he joined the Dept. of Mechanical Engineering of King's College London as a Lecturer. He moved to Imperial College, Dept. of Aeronautics in July 2011.

Research interests: numerical simulation of laminar and turbulent flows with particular emphasis on flow control, stability, fluid-structure-interaction and mixing.
