Short Curriculum Vitae

Dr. Emmanuel Stratakis received his PhD from the Physics Department of the University of Crete in 2001. Since 2003 he joined as a visiting Researcher the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of FORTH and as a visiting Professor the Department of Materials Science and Technology, University of Crete, where he remains until today. In the autumns of 2006 and 2008 he was invited as a visiting Researcher at the University of California, Berkeley, U.S. In 2007 he was elected Research Associate at IESL-FORTH where he is leading the "Ultrafast Laser Micro- and Nano- processing activity". He has a long-term experience in the optical, structural and electrical characterization of materials and the development of innovative manufacturing techniques of micro/nano structures based on lasers. His main research interests include the development of 3D biomaterials scaffolds for tissue regeneration, the fabrication and study of biomimetic and responsive materials for microfluidic applications and the development of innovative diagnostic techniques at the nanoscale based on Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) complemented with fs laser illumination. His scientific work includes 40 publications in refereed journals (till August 2010), 4 chapters in refereed books, 1 patent and 2 undergraduate course books. He currently participates in 4 EU administered research projects.
