How Georgios became a Hero of Tech
|Ph.D, TU Wien
Reseraches in Laboratories in Greece, France, Portugal, Saudi Arabia and Austria
I grew up in Greece, on the island of Evia and studied in Thessaloniki, Athens, Eindhoven and Vienna were I acquired my Ph.D. degree.
I have conducted research in Laboratories in Greece, France, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, and the last 8 years in Austria. Sensors have been always in my focus:
Magnetic sensors for position measurements, inductive sensors noise optimization, microfluidic nanoparticle platform for biosensing applications, chip electrophoresis analyzer for agricultural use.
The later, is a project that I have worked on all the way from early development, in an academic environment, to a commercial product. That Journey from an idea to a meaningful device and from infinitesimally small physical interactions to digital signals is why I am passionate about sensor technology.
I like constantly learning new technologies and tackling complex physical problems most at my job.
