Schedule

Alexandros Lappas is the Director of Research at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH), where he leads the Quantum Materials and Magnetism Lab. He studied Physics at the University of Crete (Greece) and obtained a D.Phil. in Chemical Physics from the University of Sussex (UK), where he also worked as a Visiting Lecturer (Inorganic & Physical Chemistry curriculum). He is a Visiting Researcher at Rutherford Appleton Lab (RAL; UK) and Brookhaven National Lab (BNL; USA), where he utilizes cutting-edge neutron and synchrotron science tools for understanding the structure and dynamics of condensed matter. His research is motivated by cooperative phenomena of interacting charge carriers and magnetic moments in bulk and nanoscale materials that facilitate solutions in energy research (grid technologies) or health monitoring (theranostics). Dr Lappas has been the project leader in a number (19) of European and National R&D programmes, published more than 110 peer-reviewed journal articles and delivered 30 invited lectures in international conferences. He is honored by the Fulbright Foundation as a Visiting Scholar in the USA.
