About me

My research work is actually oriented through the following fields:
  • Structural characterization of inorganic materials by application of various spectroscopic techniques.
  • Electrodeposition of metal, alloy, composite nanostructured coatings.
  • Synthesis and characterization (microstructure – properties – photocatlytic, mechanical, corrossion) of coatings.
  • Synthesis of metallic and alloy nanostructures (nanowires, nanotubes and nanostructured templates).
  • Synthesis and characterisation of "smart" nanocomposites for self-cleaning, antibacterial and anticancer applications.
  • Wastewater treatment by development of metal removal processes, as well as green technologies based on novel nanomaterials.
  • Exploiting new technologies in the production of multimedia and digital educational material for chemistry and chemical technology teaching.

What I do

Scientific activities

I am a reviewer in 22 scientific journals.

Research work

I have participated so far in 32 national and international projects and I am always interested in new research.


I collaborate with 19 academic and research institutes, as well as various industrial and technological companies.

A few facts about my work....


Educational work

I am currently a professor at the National Technical University of Athens, School of Chemical Engineering, teaching a variety of undergraduate and master courses.

As part of my duties, I have supervised over 30 theses, and participated in the examining committee of more than 70 of them.
