Electronic structure theory aims to link quantum states of single electrons to physical and chemical properties of complex materials. Prof. Remediakis employs first-principles computer simulations for low-dimensional systems with applications to nano-chemistry (shape and properties of metal nanoparticles, heterogeneous catalysis) and nano-physics (two-dimensional semiconductors, nanostructured solids).
Short Curriculum Vitae
Ioannis N. Remediakis, got his bachelor (1997), masters (1998), PhD (2002) degrees from the Department of Physics, University of Crete. His PhD research (simulations for alloyed semiconductor surfaces) was performed at Harvard University. Between 2002 and 2008, he held teaching and research appointments at the University of Ioannina, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and the University of Crete. In 2008, he joined MST as Assistant Professor where he was tenured in 2012. He is also affiliated research Scientist with the Institute for Electronic Structure and Laser, FORTH.
