    Research Director, NCSR “Demokritos”, INN, Laboratory of Functional Nanomaterials of Organized Structure, 15310 Aghia Paraskevi, Attiki, Greece.

    Education: Diploma in Chemical Engineering, 1984, National Technical University of Athens; Ph.D. in Polymeric Liquid Crystals, 1992, National Technical University of Athens.

    Professional experience: Researcher, NCSR «Demokritos», Greece (1995 - today); head of the Laboratory of Functional Nanomaterials of Organized Structure (2007- today); Research scientist, R&D dept., ARGO SA, Greece (1988-1995).

    Research interests mainly include synthetic and physicochemical aspects of dendritic polymers, liposomes and liquid crystals, specifically: studies of liposomal interactions; application of (multi)functional liposomes as drug carriers; (multi)functionalization of dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers and their study as prospected controlled release and targeted drug delivery systems; functional dendrimers and hyperbranched polymers as gene delivery systems; hybrid organic/inorganic nanomaterials based on an environmentally friendly biomimetic processes; nano-hydroxyapatite/biopolymer porous 3D scaffolds of complex geometries; hybrid organic/inorganic nanomaterials based on dendritic polymers for water purification; biomimetic mineralization employing dendritic polymers; synthesis and characterization of polymeric, dendrimeric or hydrogen-bonded supramolecular liquid crystals.
