I am currently working in a research institute in Heraklion of Crete. My main interests are the a) solution growth of metal oxides, b) development of smart windows, c) self-cleaning materials and d) Li batteries with easy, environmental friendly and low cost procedures. The aim is the application of these materials and devices in many different areas of industry (buildings, greenhouses, cars, trains etc.).
