weathering mechanisms of archaeological and building materials, nano-composites for consolidation of built heritage, physico-chemical characterization of building materials


Dr. Anastasia Michalopoulou graduated from the Department of Chemical Engineering (MEng), National Technical University of Athens in 2012 and she owns a master degree (MSc) in “Science for the Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage” from the University of Bologna (2014). She conducted her master thesis at the laboratory of Archaeological Materials of the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, NCSR “Demokritos”, on the “Evaluation of the consolidation effect of different nano-composite materials on natural stones”. In 2019 she obtained her PhD from the Technical University of Crete, working at the laboratory of Archaeological Materials of INN. Her research was focused on the development and characterization of surface modified nano-composites for the consolidation and protection of porous building materials. Her research was co-financed by the NSRF 2014-2020, the European Social Fund and the European Social Fund of the Greek State. Currently she is working as a post-doctorate researcher at the Laboratory of Archaeological and Building Materials of I.N.N.
