Chrysanthos Gounaris received a Dipl. in Chemical Engineering (2002) and an M.Sc. in Process Control (2003) from the National Technical University of Athens. He then attended Princeton University, where he earned an M.A. (2005) and a Ph.D. in Chemical Engineering (2008). His doctoral thesis, pursued under the supervision of Chris A. Floudas, is entitled "Advances in Global Optimization and the Rational Design of Shape-Selective Separations" and explores the use of nonlinear modeling and global optimization techniques in the study of porous materials. After graduation, Gounaris joined McKinsey & Co. as an associate, where he provided consultation to petrochemical, pharmaceutical, and consumer packaged-goods companies on a variety of projects of operational and strategic nature (2008-2010). He returned to academia to pursue postdoctoral research at Princeton University (2010-2013), after which he joined the Department of Chemical Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University as an assistant professor (2013-).
