Dr. George Frantziskonis is a tenured professor appointment with the Civil Engineering and Engineering Mechanics Department at the University of Arizona, and a joint appointment with the Material Science and Engineering department. He joined the University of Arizona faculty in 1988 after a visiting position at Aristotle University and consulting for the industry. He is a registered professional Civil Engineer in the State of Arizona and in the European Union state members. His teaching interests and activities include contemporary multimedia course delivery methods tailored to classroom-based, distance learning, and classes of large enrollment. He has taught numerous courses in the broad areas of Civil Engineering, Mechanics, general Engineering, and Engineering design. He has directed graduate students in Civil Engineering, Engineering Mechanics/Materials, and Mechanical, Aerospace Engineering. Dr. Frantziskonis's areas of research interests and activities include multi-and inter-disciplinary multiscale modeling, simulation, and experimentation, material characterization and applications, probabilistic and multiscale problem formulation and description and applications to safety and reliability, behaviour of materials at nano-scale, reaction-diffusion-transport and reactive flow problems. Applications include material characterization and modeling, storage of renewable energy, and reaction-diffusion-transport phenomena in energy production processes.
