Dr. Aristides Prospathopoulos is a Research Assistant of the Institute of Oceanography at HCMR. He assumed his duties in April 2001.

Dr. Prospathopoulos earned his doctoral degree in Underwater Acoustics from the School of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering of National Technical University of Athens (NTUA), Greece, working in the Professor Gerassimos Athanassoulis’ Group (Ship and Marine Hydrodynamic Laboratory). His thesis work focused on three-dimensional acoustic scattering from axisymmetric obstacles in ocean waveguides. The first two publications relative to his thesis, concerning the 3D acoustic scattering of a source-generated field from a rigid cylindrical island and a penetrable layered cylindrical obstacle in a horizontally stratified ocean waveguide, number until now about 30 citations.

During his doctoral training and his research service in HCMR, Dr. Prospathopoulos has dealt with problems involving wave modeling and software development for special applications, modeling for acoustic propagation and scattering in ocean waveguides, numerical wave models for open sea and coastal areas, sediment transport in coastal zone, statistical analysis of wave data and algorithms for analysis of radioactivity spectra in the marine environment.

Dr. Prospathopoulos has 20 peer-reviewed publications in international journals and conferences with about 60 citations. He has participated in numerous national and international projects and has presented works in many international conferences / symposia. He has been twice an invited speaker, a member of the organizing committee of a ESF MedCLIVAR Workshop and Summer School and a reviewer in The Open Ocean Engineering Journal (May 2011), the ISOPE 21th International Offshore (Ocean) and Polar Engineering Conference (June 2011) and the ASME “27th International Conference on Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering (June 2008).

Dr. Prospathopoulos also holds a diploma in Mechanical Engineering from NTUA.
