|Expertise:||My research interests lie in all aspects of the relationships between structure and multifunctional properties of polymers and composites. My work also explores the application of strain on nanomaterials and nanocomposites for the understanding of their deformation mechanisms, their intrinsic mechanical properties and their phase changes under strain. By incorporating concepts of materials science, physics, chemistry and biology, my research targets several technologies that will impact our society in the future such as high-performance nanocomposites, bio-based polymers and composites, energy generation and storage, sensitive sensors and actuators.|
Dimitrios Papageorgiou studied Physics and Materials Science and obtained his PhD in Polymer Nanocomposites from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece. He then moved to The University of Manchester as a Research Associate working under the Graphene Flagship project, investigating the use of graphene and other 2D materials as reinforcements for multifunctional, polymer-based nanocomposites. He is currently a Lecturer in Materials Science at Queen Mary University of London.
