Michael graduated from the University of Sheffield with a MEng in Mechanical Engineering. During the summer of 2013 he was awarded with the SURE scheme (Sheffield Undergraduate Research Scheme). The project he worked during the scheme was based on the implementation of ultrasounds for in-vitro testing in Gas Turbine Engines. During his final year, he undertook the project as his final year project and received a funding of £5000 provided by Siemens. Afterward he joined the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the University of Cyprus to continue his studies in doctoral level. His interests lie in CPVs and BIPVs, performance and degradation rates.
