## Abstract

This is a short Bio-note of Michael Gr. Voskoglou, Professor Emeritus of Mathematical Sciences at the School of Technological Applications of the Graduate Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Western Greece, which has been joined recently with the University of Peloponnese, Greece.

## 1. Introduction

Michael Gr. Voskoglou received his B.Sc. in Mathematics (1972, Excellent) from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, his M.Sc. in Pure Mathematics (1978) and M.Phil. in Algebra (1980) from the University of Leeds, UK and his Ph.D. (1982, Excellent) from the University of Patras, Greece. His Ph.D. thesis entitled “A Contribution to the Study of Rings” was a research study on derivations and skew polynomial rings.

At the beginning of his career (1972-1987) M. Voskoglou worked as a teacher of mathematics of the Greek public secondary Education in the city of Patras, with a three years break (1976-78) for his postgraduate studies in England under sabbatical from the Greek Ministry of Education and a NATO’s fellowship (technical assistance). In 1987 he was elected as a Lecturer at the TEI of Messolonghi, where he became a full Professor of Mathematics and Operations Research at the School of Management and Economics in 1989. Vice president of the Research Committee and Erasmus coordinator (1990 - 1994), Dean of the School of Management and Economics (1995–1997) and Scientific Director of five programs of technological research on applications of quantitative methods to Cooperatives (1989 – 1996).

During the period 1997-2000 Prof. Voskoglou worked as a visiting researcher in the Institute of Mathematics and Informatics of the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences in Sofia. At the end of 2000 he joined as a full Professor of Applied Mathematics the School of Technological Applications of the Graduate TEI of Patras. Head of the Department of Renovation and Restoration of Buildings and Scientific Director of the European Program “Expansion of Tertiary Education” (2001-2005), he became an Emeritus Professor in 2012. The School of Technological Applications of the TEI of Patras, which was renamed later as TEI of Western Greece, has been joined recently with the University of Peloponnese.

Prof. Voskoglou used to be also an instructor at the Hellenic Open University, at the Mathematics Department of the University of Patras and at the Schools of Primary and Secondary In – Service Teachers’ Training in Patras. He has lectured abroad as a Visiting Professor in M.Sc. courses at the School of Management of the University of Warsaw (2009), at the Department of Operational Mathematics of the University of Applied Sciences in Berlin (2010) and at the Mathematics Department of the National Institute of Technology of Durgapur (2016) under a grand of the GIAN program (Course No. 161021K03) of the Indian Government.

Supervisor of many student dissertations on applications of Mathematics to Management and Engineering and external examiner of Ph.D. dissertations at Universities of Egypt, India and Saudi Arabia. He is the recipient of many scholarships (Greek Institute of National Scholarships, NATO’s technical assistance, GIAN-India, etc.), distinctions (Who is Who in the World, Who is Who in America, Men of Achievement, Board of Advisors of the American Biographical Institute, etc.) and honorary awards (appreciation plaques from the Egyptian Computer Society, Ain Shams University, Cairo, National Institute of Technology of Durgapur, India, Einstein Award of the International Biographical Centre, Cambridge, UK, etc.). Prof. Voskoglou is also a member of several scientific associations (AMS, HMS, ICTMA, IETI, etc.).
