About/Biography
Dr. Marianna Vasilakaki graduated from the School of Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences, National Technical University of Athens (2004) and received her M.Sc.Degree in Physical and Technological Applications and her Ph.D in Physics (2010) from the same department. Since 2010 she has worked as a postdoctoral researcher in several National (ARISTEIA I, Bilateral Greece-Hungary NSRF) and European funding projects (NANOSPIN), in the Computational Modeling of Nanostructured Materials Science Group in the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of National Center of Scientific Research ‘Demokritos’. She is currently postdoctoral researcher in the FET-proactive research project Magenta – Magnetic nanoparticle based liquid energy materials for thermoelectric device applications (Horizon 2020). Her research interests lie in the area of Computational Physics, Statistical mechanics and Materials Science and focus on modeling and theoretical study of structural, static and dynamic properties of nanostructured materials for biomedical (hyperthermia, magnetic resonance imaging, biosensors), environmental (magneto caloric), energy (magneto-thermal effects) and technological (magnetic recording media, magnetic sensors, microwave) applications in atomic, microscopic and mesoscopic scale. Emphasis is given on the study of multifunctional hybrid nanoparticle systems, complex nanostructured materials and layered nanostructure. She has been co-author in 32 journal publications, five chapters in books and over 80 conference presentations. Her h-index is 16 and her publications have received more than 939 total citations in publications archived in Scopus.
