Academic interests

My primary research interest is heterogeneous catalysis with a focus on direct activation of lower alkenes, methanol to hydrocarbons and emission control. These involve the catalytic activity evaluation experiments, mechanistic and kinetics studies as well as intensive characterization to reveal the correlation between material properties and catalytic performance.


Master of Science, Chemical Engineering Department, College of Engineering & Applied Science, Cincinnati, USA, 2014

Diploma in Chemical Engineering, Chemical Engineering Department, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, 2011


Within the iCSI project “The next step in direct activation of lower alkanes” I collaborate with Pablo Beato, Haldor Topsøe A/S, Denmark, Bjørnar Arstad, SINTEF Materials and Chemistry, Norway and Silvia Bordiga, University of Turin, Italy
