Christos Tsakonas

Christos Tsakonas received his Diploma in Chemical Engineering from the University of Patras in 2014 and his MSc in Computational Mechanics from National Technical University of Athens in 2017. He is a Ph.D. Candidate at the Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Laboratory (Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Patras) and a research assistant at the Composites and Nanostructured Materials Laboratory (FORTH/ICE-HT) since 2017. His master thesis focused on Investigation of Chemical Vapor Deposition Processes using computational Models. His PhD research is currently focused on production of graphene sheets and other 2D materials with chemical vapour deposition on solid and liquid catalytic substrates as well as their characterization by in-situ techniques.
