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)

Other activities

  • Organizational support for KONWIHR (9/2018 - today)
  • Registered first aider / first responder for SCCS (7/2019 - 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

  • Francisco Espinosa is doing his Master's Thesis for M.Sc. CSE. The working title of his thesis is "A flexible approach to 2D-3D coupling of a Shallow-Water Equation solver to OpenFOAM".
  • Konrad Eder is a student assistant for the ATHLET-preCICE project. He is assisting in the development of the ATHLET adapter for preCICE, in bringing preCICE to Windows, and in testing preCICE.

Finished student projects

  • Moritz Gnisia was a student assistant. He modernized the code framework of the course "CFD Lab" and developed a CI infrastructure and auxiliary tools for the course.
  • Michel Takken was a student assistant for the preDOM project. He updated the Code_Aster adapter for preCICE for preCICE v2 and Code_Aster 14, he wrote documentation, prepared a tutorial simulation case, as well as a system test with Code_Aster and OpenFOAM.
  • Ayman Noureldin did his Master's Thesis for M.Sc. CSE. The title of his thesis was "A Master-Slave Approach for Multi-Phase Fluid-Fluid Coupling of OpenFOAM and ATHLET". This work was in collaboration with the GRS institute in Garching.
