Liverios Lymperakis is an Associate Professor in the Dept. of Physics, University of Crete, and an Associated Researcher of IESL-FORTH. He studied Physics (Bachelor's degree) and Physics of Materials (Master's degree) at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. He contacted his doctoral work at the Fritz-Haber-Institute of the Max-Planck-Society in Berlin and received his Ph.D. from the University of Paderbon in 2005 with summa cum laude.
He worked as a group and project leader at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung in Düsseldorf from 2005 to 2011 and from 2012-2021. His field of expertise is in Computational Materials with a strong focus on first-principles calculations and ab-initio-based multiscale calculations. His research addresses topics in the fields of science and technology of materials, such as properties and epitaxial growth of compound semiconductors, novel nano- and hetero-structures for optoelectronic and powerelectronic applications, and properties of bio-inspired and structural materials at the nanoscale.
