Panagiota Bika, graduate of the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Patras (2017), Greece, conducted her thesis in the field of heterogeneous catalysis for the purification of the reformatted gas in hydrogen fuel cells. She received the Erasmus fellowship from the EU in 2016 and completed her internship at CIRIMAT, CNRS of INP-ENSCIASET, Toulouse, France, regarding the research of the optical properties of nanocomposite polymeric materials for photovoltaic applications. She obtained her master's degree in Materials Engineering and Nanosciences at the Department of Physics and Engineering of the University of Strasbourg, France 2018. She completed at IPCMS, CNRS her postgraduate thesis in the field of biomaterials with the development of hybrid metal/polymer systems. From 2019 until today, Panagiota Bika is a PhD candidate at the Department of Chemistry of the University of Athens, Greece and works as a scientific collaborator at the INN of NCSR Demokritos in a project of ELIDEK entitled 'Two-dimensional semiconductors with plasmonic nanoparticles as photocatalysts and fluorescent substrates' under the supervision of Dr. Panagiotis Dallas.
