Short Curriculum Vitae

Emmanouil Glynos received his PhD in Materials Science, in in the core subject of polymer physics, at the University of Edinburgh in 2007. Before joining the Department of Material Science & Technology as an Assistant Professor in 2021, he was a postdoctoral research associate at the Department of Material Science and Engineering at the University of Michigan until 2012, and he was subsequently appointed as a Research Investigator at the University of Michigan at the Center for Solar and Thermal Energy. From 2015 to 2021 he was a Research Scientist at FORTH/IESL. He has published 49 papers in referred international journals, 1 book chapter and 6 in Peer-Reviewed Conference Proceedings. His work has received 1647 citations with an h-index = 24 and i10-index = 39 (as given by Google Scholar on 15 November 2021). His work has been presented in more than 80 times in International Conferences and Colloquia; 15 invited in International Meetings and 18 invited at Universities and Research Centers.
