Ms. Babaliari Eleftheria
Ph.D. student

Ms. Eleftheria Babaliari is a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Materials Science and Technology at the University of Crete, Greece. She has received three PhD scholarships under the framework of IKY (2016-2019), ELIDEK (2017) and Onassis Foundation (2016).  She received a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree in Materials Science and Technology from the University of Crete, Greece in 2012 and 2015, respectively. During the undergraduate program, she joined the Polymer Group of the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL), FORTH where she worked on the rheology of hard spheres colloidal suspensions and binary mixtures. Ιn the graduate program, she joined the Biomaterials Lab of the Department of Materials Science and Technology in Crete where she studied the effect of microfluidics in biomaterials for bone tissue engineering applications. In 2015, she joined the Ultrafast Laser Micro and Nano Processing Group of the IESL, FORTH. Her current research interests include the development of laser-microstructured scaffolds for tissue engineering using Ultrafast Laser Processing and the study of the combined effect of shear stress and topography on tissue growth.
