Biography

George studied Chemistry (BSc., MSc., PhD) at the University of Ioannina (Ioannina, Greece) and became familiar with key areas of organic chemistry (MSc) and coordination chemistry (PhD). During his PhD, George worked as a Marie Curie Fellow with Casella (Italy) and Nordlander (Sweden). After completion of his military duty (Nov 2006 – Nov 2007), George was employed as PDRA at the Inorganic Chemistry Institute, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Karlsruhe, Germany) under the supervision of Prof. Annie K. Powell and subsequently worked as Senior Researcher at the Institute of Nanotechnology (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology). George joined School of Life Sciences, University of Sussex, in September 2013 and focused his research interests on groundbreaking aspects of coordination chemistry, including a) Exploration of the catalytic properties of polynuclear 3d/4f Coordination Clusters (CCs), b) Synthesis of new coordination polymers based on benzotriazole ligands and exploration of their catalytic activity and c) Development of the Polynuclear Inorganic Clusters Database (PICD).
