Vasilis received his Bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Technology from University of Crete, Greece in 2017. His BSc thesis, under the supervision of Dr. Kelly Velonia, dealt with the synthesis and characterization of biodegradable giant amphiphiles BSA-PLA
In the same year, Vasilis started his MSc in Chemistry (funded by British Council) at Lancaster University in United Kingdom. He performed his thesis in the group of Dr. John Hardy on biomaterials. During this period, he was worked on light responsive polymers for drug delivery and silk-based biomaterials.
In April 2019, he joined the Electronic Plants group at Linköping University as a PhD student. Vasilis’ work focuses on in-vivo and in-vitro electronic functionalization of wood. In addition, he works on developing electronic platforms for controlled plant growth. Vasilis is driven by his passion for multidisciplinary research that can positively impact the society.
