EPR spectroscopy, X-ray spectroscopy, Photosystem II
Maria Chrysina studied Biology at the University of Athens, followed by postgraduade studies in Bioinorganic Chemistry. During her PhD, she studied Photosystem II by Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy at the respective laboratory of NCSR “Demokritos”. She introduced in X-ray spectroscopy during post doc time in Max Planck Institute of Chemical Energy Conversion. Her main research interest is characterization of intermediates during the water spitting reaction in Photosystem II by spectroscopic techniques (continuous wave and pulse EPR, X-ray spectroscopy).
