Vasileios Chatziioannou was born and raised in Thessaloniki (Greece), where he obtained his BSc diploma at the Department of Mathematics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. In 2004 he moved to Edinburgh, where he received an MSc with distinction on Applied Mathematical Sciences from the School of Mathematical and Computer Sciences at Heriot Watt University, which was concluded by a dissertation On axisymmetric flows with no swirl. He subsequently joined Queen’s University Belfast as a PhD student, working at the Sonic Arts Research Centre and at the school of Electronics, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. His thesis, entitled Forward and inverse modelling of single-reed woodwind instruments with application to digital sound synthesis was published in 2010. Since then he works at the Department of Music Acoustics in Vienna, where he is conducting research in physical modelling of musical instruments, numerical modelling of collisions and Virtual Reality audio. He is currently coordinating the FWF-funded project on Transient Phenomena in Single-Reed Woodwind Instruments and the ITN project VRACE – Virtual Reality Audio for Cyber Environments funded by the Horizon 2020 Framework Programme of the European Union.
In 2004 he obtained the UEFA B coaching diploma and subsequently coached at the Athletik Park academy, PAS Toxotis, and the AC Milan camp, which was held in Thessaloniki in 2006. He is also a member of both the European and the American acoustical societies and has been invited to present his work and organise sessions on physical modelling on several international conferences in acoustics.
