Note: I frequently use the easier (but unofficial) form of my name "Gerasimos" → "Gerasimakis" → "Makis".

Research interests

  • Multi-physics, black-box coupling
  • Geometric multi-scale modeling (1D-3D, 2D-3D coupling)
  • Fluid-fluid, multi-model coupling
  • Fluid-structure interaction (FSI)
  • Conjugate heat transfer (CHT)
  • Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
  • Research software engineering, software sustainability


  • Doctoral project titled "Flexible Algorithms and Software for Complex Geometric Multi-Scale Coupling" (2018 - today)
  • Co-developer of preCICE, a free/open-source solver coupling library for multi-physics simulations with long history and users in several countries. As this project grows and targets users outside our research group, I am also interested in good software engineering practices, as part of the project preDOM. (2017 - today)
  • Organizational support for KONWIHR (9/2018 - today)

Student Projects

If you are interested in a student project (Bachelor's or Master's Thesis or anything else), please contact me directly. I am mostly working with preCICE, for which you can also see the page Student Projects with preCICE. See also the pages of my colleagues Benjamin Rüth, Frédéric Simonis, and Benjamin Uekermann, as well as the Student Projects at our chair.

Do you want to know what other students are working on in our chair? You are warmly encouraged to attend their presentations at the SCCS Colloquium! Come to get ideas, meet your potential supervisor, or to learn from the style of others for your own presentation.

Open student projects

Running student projects

  • Ayman Noureldin is doing his Master's Thesis for M.Sc. CSE. A preliminary title of his thesis is "A Master-Slave Approach for Multi-Phase Fluid-Fluid Coupling of OpenFOAM and ATHLET". This work is in collaboration with the GRS institute in Garching.
