Vlassis Likodimos, born in 1967 at Volos, completed his undergraduate studies in Physics at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) in 1989, where he also received his PhD in Physics in 1996. After carrying out his 18-month obligatory military service, he worked as post-doctoral researcher at the University of Pisa (1998-2000) on the development of scanning probe techniques as well as at the Institute of Materials Science in NCSR “Demokritos” (2000-2001) and the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the National Technical University of Athens as a contractual lecturer (2001-2006). He then moved as research associate to the Photoredox conversion and solar energy storage lab at NCSR “D” (2007-2014) to work on the development of innovative materials for energy and environmental applications. In 2010, he was elected Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics of NKUA, and he was appointed at this position on 2014, where he became Associate Professor in 2020. His current research focuses on nanostructured metal oxides, carbon nanomaterials and composites for photoinduced and solar energy conversion applications. He has participated in several EU and national research projects (three as PI) with 170 papers in peer reviewed journals (more than 4500 citations, h index = 40-Scopus) and 138 communications in international Conference proceedings, while he serves as reviewer in more than 60 international peer reviewed journals and Editorial Board member of Materials (Section Editor-in-Chief of Materials Physics) and Guest Editor of three Special Issues.
