Kyriaki Savva is a Post-Doctoral Researcher in the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) at Foundation for Research and Technology (FORTH) in Heraklion, Crete. She received a Bachelor’s, a Master’s and a PhD‘s Degree in Physics from University of Crete, Greece in 2009, 2012 and 2018 respectively. In the frame of the undergraduate studies, she fulfilled her diploma thesis entitled "Study of the variability of stars emitting X-ray radiation" under the supervision of Andreas Zezas and Pablo Reig. During her Masters studies, she joined the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL), FORTH where she performed research on the pulsed laser induced photochemical modification of graphene oxide under the supervision of Professor Panagiotis Tzanetakis and Dr. Emmanuel Stratakis. Then she continued as a PhD candidate of the Physics Department of the University of Crete, performing research on the “Laser assisted development of Graphene and Transition Metal Dichalcogenide nanomaterials” at the Ultrafast Laser Micro and Nano Processing Group of the IESL at FORTH, under the supervision of Prof. Costas Fotakis and Dr. Emmanuel Stratakis. Her research interests include laser processing of 2D materials, synthesis of low-dimensional materials with short laser pulses, photochemical synthesis of graphene oxide derivatives for applications in organic photovoltaics, pulsed laser deposition of thin films and characterization in semiconductor materials as XRD, FTIR, Raman and uv-vis spectroscopy.
