Dr. Melissinaki Vasileia
PostDoctoral Fellow

Dr. Vasileia Melissinaki received her PhD degree from the department of Physics of University of Crete. She received her Master degree (2011) and her Bachelor (2009) from the same department. In her PhD thesis she worked on the fabrication and studying of 3D micro-optical elements on the end face of optical fibers and their use as gas and liquid sensors.
