- Circular economy and green chemistry.
- Porous material technology (UF/NF membranes, nanomaterials).
- Development of analytical methods.
Panagiotis graduated from the Chemistry Department of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in 2022. As part of his thesis project, he developed a novel analytical method for selectively determining bismouth in water samples using microfluidic paper-based analytical devices (μPADs). Additionally, during his traineeship in the “Analytical Chemistry for Health and Environment” lab (ACHE) of the University of Graz, he investigated the prospect of using wild mushrooms as biomonitors of As contamination. Currently, he is a MSc student in the programme “Chemical and Biomolecular Analysis” in the Greek Open University. His research interests are focused on the development of analytical methods for monitoring of contaminants or valuable resources in various matrixes, and their recovery, for financial exploitation and the assurance of environmental health, using porous materials.
In his free time, Panagiotis enjoys playing the guitar and basketball, while he never says no to a cold pint of beer.
