1. Dr. Mary Konstantakou (Chemist, pHD in mechanical engineering/physical chemistry)
Maria Konstantakou is a post-doc research assistant in the group of Prof. Stergiopoulos at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. She pursued a PhD degree on gas storage in porous media at the National Centre for Scientific Research Demokritos (Athens, Greece). Then, she worked as a research associate in several projects such as on nanoporous carbon materials for hydrogen storage as well as on solution-processed mesoporous semiconductors for dye solar cells. Her current research interests include lead and tin-based perovskite films and optoelectronic devices.
2. Lazaros Theofylaktos (Physicist, Master student on perovskite films and devices)
I was born in Thessaloniki Greece, on August 3rd 1988. For 2 years I studied programming in the school of Informatics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki from 2006 to 2008. I then changed my field of study, by studying Physics in the Physics Department of the University of Ioannina from 2008 to 2016. I finished my mandatory military service along with getting my degree from the Physics Department (2015-2016). At the moment I’m in my second year of Master’s Degree, in the Chemistry Department of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in the laboratory of Physical-Chemistry, researching Perovskite Solar Cells under the guidance of Dr. Th. Stergiopoulos. At the same time I’m a private tutor of physics, math and chemistry, mainly for children with learning disabilities, covering all the classes of the Greek Middle-School System. On December 2017, I acquired my validation of adult tutoring by the D.V.M. institute, aiming towards getting the corresponding diploma as well in the near future.
3. Helen Giannakaki (Chemist, Master student on perovskite films and devices)
I was born in Thessaloniki and graduated the Department of Chemistry, University of Ioannina. Now, I am working on my Master on perovskites films in Chemistry Department of Aristoteleion University of Thessaloniki.
Above, one report of some of my scientific interests:
2017: Traineeship into Department of Chemistry, University of Padova, Italy, Synthesis of various gold nanoclusters and optical and electrochemical characterization
2016: Research visitor, Laboratory of Molecular and Cluster Dynamics in J.Heyrovsky Institute of Physical Chemistry, Prague, Czech Republic
2015: Traineeship into General Chemical State Laboratory (G.C.S.L.) of Thessaloniki, analytical tests on fuel, fertilizers and drugs.
2015: One-semester-duration seminar on “Education for Special Abilities Children”.
2015: Poster “Pharmacokinetic Study of Pseudoephedrine and its Indications and
Contraindications and Side-effects”, Congress of Scientific Society of Hellenic Medical Students
2014: Thesis of my undergraduate degree, Synthesis of a derivative of Imatinib as a potential inhibitor of protein kinases, targeting Parkinson’s disease
4. Kyro Odysseas Kosmatos (Undergraduate student, Chemistry)
Kyro Odysseas Kosmatos is currently studying for his BSc at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He is conducting his graduate thesis under the tutoring of Dr. Thomas Stergiopoulos, focusing on perovskite solar cells. During the last 3 years, he is an active member of the chemistry-focused volunteer group ReAcTiON.
5. Mikromanoli Stefania (Undergraduate student, Chemistry)
1. Dimitris Deligiannis (Msc in Polymers Chemistry, Bsc in Materials Chemistry)
Dimitris was born in Thessaloniki, Greece on 11th October 1992. He acquired his BSc in Materials Science and Engineering in 2016 from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (DMSE), University of Ioannina (UoI). In the year 2015-2016 he completed his research work on Conjugated Polymers for his Diploma Thesis, in the Polymers Laboratory, supervised by Prof. Apostolos Avgeropoulos. He is currently MSc student on the interdeparmental postgraduate program Processes & Advanced Materials Technology of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH). He is doing research on the field of Perovskite Solar Cells for his Master Thesis, in collaboration with Prof. Dim. Achillias from Polymer Chemistry Laboratory and Prof. Th. Stergiopoulos from Physical Chemistry Laboratory. He likes reading books about Startups and Economics.

2. Helen Kourti (Undergraduate student, Chemistry)
I was born in Thessaloniki Greece, on 16th November 1996. Since my high-school years Chemistry was my biggest interest. I started my studies in the Department of Chemistry of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2013 and since then I had the chance to come across various fields of Chemistry. Currently I am doing my Bachelor Thesis on Perovskite Solar Cells, as part of the research team of Dr. Th. Stergiopoulos.
3. Dora Perganti (Physisist, pHD candidate NTUA in solar cells), has worked with me as a shared student (along with Dr. Polycarpos Falaras, NCSR Demokritos) on a IKY-SIEMENS project.
