Dr. Ioanna Zergioti
Dr Ioanna Zergioti is an Associate Professor at the National Technical University of Athens, School of Applied Mathematics and Physical Sciences. She studied Physics at the University of Crete and she received the degree at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas, for her work on the growth of thin nanocrystalline Carbide films and mechanisms using laser based process. In the framework of her PhD work she worked for the fall semester of 1996 in the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of California, Berkeley on the Laser Induced Forward Transfer process. After her PhD, she worked as a post doctoral researcher in the Max Planck Institut für Biophysikalische Chemie in Göttingen, on Laser matter interactions studies. Then, she worked as a post-doctoral researcher in the Philips CFT on Laser Sintering of sol gels for electronics until 2000. She was a researcher for 4 years (1999-2003) at the Laser Applications Division of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser – FORTH, where she developed works on ultrashort laser microstructuring (etching and printing) of metals, oxides and biomaterials. Since September 2003 she was appointed at the National Technical University of Athens, School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences and since 2013 she is an Associate Professor. Her main activities are related to the laser microprinting of biological molecules and laser matter interaction studies for biotechnological applications and organic electronics.
She has co-authored more than 80 publications in international refereed journals, 90 publications in conference proceedings, 3 chapter in scientific books, 3 granted Greek patents, 1 European patent. She has co-organised CLEO, EMRS and COLA conferences. She is currently coordinating two European Research projects, a Marie Curie IAPP “LaserMicroFab” and an ICT “BIOFOS”, and one National Research project NSRF COOPERATION 2011 (11PLUS_1_1799) "NANOTHER: Magnetic nanoparticles for targeted treatment using magnetic resonance imaging".
