Konstantinos Boulouchos holds a Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens and a Ph.D. Degree from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zürich. Following post-doctoral research at Princeton University he returned to ETH Zürich end of 1988 to establish the research group on unsteady combustion at the Institute of Energy Technology.
In 1995 he was appointed head of the Combustion Research Section at the Paul Scherrer Institut (PSI) and has coordinated from then on till 2005 the Joint Combustion Research Program of ETH Zurich and PSI. In 2002 he was elected Full Professor and head of the Aerothermochemistry and Combustion Systems Laboratory at ETH Zurich. He has also served as Chairman of the Board of the Energy Science Center ETH Zürich from its foundation 2005 until 2011. In this capacity he was coordinating author of the “Energy Strategy for ETH Zürich” (2008) and “Energy Future for Switzerland” (2011).
His research interests focus on fundamentals of chemically reactive systems in energy conversion technology with regard both to modeling and simulation of laminar and turbulent reactive flows and to non-intrusive diagnostic methods in combustion systems. Based thereupon the groups aims at transferring insight from basic research to industry for developing low-carbon, “near-zero” emission combustion technologies, including biogenic energy carriers. Research in recent years includes also elaboration of optimal strategies for a sustainable future global and national energy system.
Konstantinos Boulouchos has won among others the Distinguished Paper Award in Colloquium New Technology Concepts from the Combustion Institute Pittsburgh, the Arch T. Colwell-Medal of the Society of Automotive Engineers/USA and the Innovation Prize of the German Natural Gas Association.
Konstantinos Boulouchos is currently engaged in research projects with around 15 national and international industrial companies. He is a member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Engine Research, of the Steering Committee of the Swiss Competence Center for Energy and Mobility (CCEM), of the Advisory Board of the Institute for Vehicle Technology of the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and the board of trustees of ProClim (the Swiss forum for Climate and Global Change issues). He serves also in the Advisory Council of Federal Chancellor Mrs. D. Leuthard on Energy Issues, in the permanent Energy Commission of the Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences and in the Science Advisory Board of the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences.
