ABOUT

IMG_3615Konstantinos Kouroupis-Agalou is a PhD/Marie Curie Fellow and as a materials scientist his research is focused on the process and characterization of 2D-Nanomaterials at the Council of National Research of Italy (CNR-ISOF) and University of Bologna. Prior to graduate work Konstantinos completed an undergraduate degree in Materials Science at University of Crete and after started working for a European project (NATCO) at FORTH-IESL with Dr. E. Papadopoulou.

After winning a Marie-Curie fellowship, he started his PhD under the supervision of Dr. V. Palermo at the Nanochemistry Lab of CNR-ISOF within the European project of GENIUS and Prof. L. Giorgini at the Department of Chemistry in the University of Bologna.

His PhD research and interests are focusing on the processing, development and characterization of two-dimensional layered nanomaterials (Graphene, Graphene Oxide, Boron Nitride), with prospective application in organic electronics and nanocomposite materials,  and their characterization by microscopic techniques (AFM, KPFM), UV/VIS, Dynamic Light Scattering and other spectroscopies within the collaborations of the “GENIUS-ITN” project

Since April 2013, he is also a member of the EuroGRAPHENE Community of the European Science Foundation (ESF), the Marie Curie Alumni Association (MCAA) and Supervisory Board representative fellow of the GENIUS project.
