Dr. Andreas Mavrantonakis
Senior Assistant Researcher
University of Crete. Greece
Computational design of nanomaterials for energy and storage applications
Andreas Mavrantonakis got his PhD in Chemistry at the University of Crete, Greece in 2007. He has held several postdoctoral positions in Germany and USA: i) 2007 – 2009 as Humboldt Fellow in Karlsruher Institute of Technology (KIT), Germany, ii) 2009 – 2011 in Humboldt University Berlin, iii) 2011-2014 in Jacobs University Bremen as Principal Investigator in a project funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and iv) 2015 – 2017 as postdoctoral associate in the University of Minnesota, USA.
His research expertise is the application of computational techniques to model structural, electronic, spectroscopic, catalytic and sorption properties of functional nanomaterials, such as Carbon Nanotubes and Metal Organic Frameworks.
He is the author of 40 scientific publications (3 as corresponding author) and has supervised several undergraduate and postgraduate students.
In November 2017, he joined IMDEA and his main task is the computational design of new nanomaterials for electrochemical energy storage.
