Dr Angelika Balliou is a physicist with specialization in molecular electronics and nanotechnology. She received her BSc/MSc from the School of Applied Mathematical & Physical Sciences (NTUA) in collaboration with TU Berlin (2007), her MSc on Material Science & Technology (NTUA) in 2009 and her PhD in the field of nanotechnology and molecular electronics in 2016 from NTUA and NSCR Demokritos.
She has participated in several national, bilateral and EU projects as research scientist, has worked as collaborating research scientist in NCSR Demokritos and IESL Forth and as teaching associate in the University of Pedagogical and Technological Education of Greece, while in the private sector she has been employed as Consultant and EU project writer.
She is first and corresponding author in high impact peer reviewed scientific journals (Adv. Funct. Mater., Wiley, (if=18.8), ACS Appl. Mater. & Interf. (if=9.2) etc.) with more than ten papers in international peer-reviewed journals, has participated in several international conferences as a speaker (Nature, IEEE, etc.) and has more than 10 papers in international conference proceeding volumes. She is author of one research monograph and has one book contribution. She is active reviewer in several well-known journals and has co-organized the Workshop “Creative Industries & Design as a Catalyst for Entrepreneurship & Innovation”, Macerata, Italy (07/2016). She has also contributed as invited speaker in 3 advanced schools & conferences and is an incubating entrepreneur in the field of epigenomics-enabled nutrition, functional food & beverage.
Dr Balliou has experience in a wide variety of physical, chemical, engineering & molecular techniques & computer modelling tools (Matlab, Mathematica, COMSOL). Her research interests include the physics, design and fabrication of novel devices and nanostructured materials for memory and logic applications in both purely solid state and hybrid structures topologies, the study and integration of nanoparticles, organic and non-organic molecular and low dimensional materials like graphene and quantum dots in CMOS-compatible topologies and devices, the advanced electrical characterization and physics of FET devices, non-volatile memories and optoelectronic devices, metal oxides and transition metal oxides, neuromorphic and bio-inspired applications. Currently, she is working with FETs that make use of non-conventional MoS2 structures and is exploring ionic liquid-enabled high performance high imperfection films and concepts for transistors.
