Dr. Tsilipakos Odysseas
PostDoctoral Fellow

Dr. Odysseas Tsilipakos received the diploma and Ph.D. degrees from the Dept. of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh) in 2008 and 2013, respectively. From 2014 to 2015 he was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow with AUTh. In 2016 he started working as a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL), Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas (FORTH) as a member of the Photonic-, Phononic-, and Meta-materials (PPM) group. Since 2021 he is the Principal Investigator of the PHOTOSURF Research Project funded by the Hellenic Foundation for Research and Innovation. His research interests span metasurfaces and metamaterials, plasmonics and nanophotonics, resonators and cavities, nonlinear optics in resonant structures and waveguides, 2D photonic materials, and theoretical and computational electromagnetics. He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a member of The Optical Society (OSA).
