Dr. Michael Fardis graduated from Aristoteleion University of Thessaloniki, Greece, with a degree in Physics in 1983. He then completed (1984) an MSc. course in solid state physics in Bedford College of the University of London. The project concerned the observation of very small NMR signal using a SQUID magnetometer. He then continued pursuing doctoral research in the Millikelvin Laboratory of Royal Holloway College of the University of London in the group of Prof. B.P. Cowan, completing his Ph.D. in 1990. The project was on the study of 2D films of 3He using NMR techniques. He then moved to Greece to work at the Institute of Materials Science, DEMOKRITOS NCSR in the Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Laboratory. He has then been engaged in research in the field of Experimental Condensed Matter Physics using Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) as primary technique of investigation. His research in INN has focused on Solid State Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR), NMR in low dimensional magnetic systems including molecular nanomagnets and magnetic nanoparticles, strongly correlated electron systems and NMR in fluids confined in nanoporous materials. Recent efforts focus on the studies of electronic properties and local densities of states in bulk and nanoparticle catalysts. He has published more than 60 articles in peer-reviewed journals which have been cited more than 700 times and has a h-factor of 18.
