Dr. Sarris Ernestos is an Assistant Professor specializing in hydrocarbon exploration within the School of Geology at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. With an early career trajectory, he previously served as an Assistant Professor before being promoted to the rank of Associate Professor in the Department of Engineering at the University of Nicosia, Cyprus, specifically within the Oil, Gas and energy engineering but also in the Civil Engineering programs. Notably, Dr. Ernestos has wielded his expertise as the director of both petrophysics and drilling fluids laboratories that he continues with his new appointment, further solidifying his contributions to the field. Holding a PhD in Petroleum Geomechanics from the University of Cyprus, his academic journey has been dedicated to pioneering research in the applications of computational geomechanics and specializing in the hydraulic fracturing technique. His areas of expertise span a wide array, encompassing finite elements and computational fluid dynamics, with a primary focus on Petroleum Geomechanics. Within this domain, Dr. Ernestos has contributions in petroleum-related rock mechanics, hydraulic fracturing methodologies, sanding prediction and control, wellbore stability, and multiphase flows. His research extends into crucial areas such as CO2 geological storage, drilling fluids, and enhanced oil recovery (EOR) underscoring his invaluable contributions to the advancement of the energy sector.
