Ms. Zouridi Leila
Ph.D. student
Leila Zouridi holds a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry and a Master’s degree in Materials Science. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate at the Materials Science and Technology department at the University of Crete (UOC). Her Ph.D. thesis focuses on the additive manufacturing of electrochemical devices for both solid oxide cells (SOCs) and gas sensing devices. Her current research interests lie on solution-based and mechanochemical synthesis of transition metals oxide semiconductors (TMO) and mixed ion-electron conductors (MIEC), crystalline structure and properties of nanomaterials, development of inks and colloidal dispersions from powdered materials, printing of thin films and devices, and application of such devices for sustainable energy production (solid oxide fuel cells and hydrogen technology) and energy-saving technologies (thermochromic coatings). Her research activities for her B.Sc., M.Sc. and Ph.D. thesis were and are being conducted at IESL-FORTH facilities, in collaboration with UOC facilities, under the supervision of PI Dr. Vassilios Binas.
