Dr. Babaliari Eleftheria
PostDoctoral Fellow

Dr. Eleftheria Babaliari is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the 
Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH), Institute of 
Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL). She received a Bachelor’s, a 
Master’s and a Ph.D.’s Degree in Materials Science and Technology from 
the University of Crete, Greece in 2012, 2015 and 2020, respectively. 
During the undergraduate program, she joined the Polymer Group of the 
IESL, FORTH where she worked on the rheology of hard spheres colloidal 
suspensions and binary mixtures. Ιn the master’s degree 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. During her 
Ph.D., she joined in 2015 the Ultrafast Laser Micro and Nano 
Processing Group of the IESL, FORTH performing research on the laser 
microstructured scaffolds for tissue engineering under dynamic cell 
culture conditions. Her current research interests include the 
development of laser-microstructured scaffolds for tissue engineering 
applications, using ultrafast laser structuring, and the study of the 
combined effect of flow-induced shear stress and surface topography on 
tissue growth.
