Dr Athanasia Kostopoulou received her B.Sc. degree in Physics (2004) and her M.Sc. degree (2006) on Materials Physics & Technology from the Physics Department at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Since 2012, when received her Ph.D. from the Chemistry Department at the University of Crete, she is a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser at FORTH (Heraklion). Since 2018 and for the next three years, she is coordinator of the program for new researchers with title “Low-Temperature Growth of Perovskite Nanosystems for High-Performance Perovskite Solar Cells” financially supported by General Secretariat for Research and Technology (GSRT) and the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation (HFRI). She is working on the chemical synthesis and elucidation of the microscopic physical mechanisms involving nanocrystal systems of different chemical phases and morphologies (magnetic and semiconducting).
