Bio. Ioannis (Yannis) holds a BSc. degree in Chemistry and a MSc. degree in Environmental Chemistry and Technology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, the latter under the supervision of Prof. Michael Scoullos. In 2015 he acquired his PhD. degree in Materials Chemistry from the University of Crete, under the supervision of Prof. Pantelis N. Trikalitis working on the development of Metal Organic Frameworks for gas storage and separation applications. After one year as a Post-Doctoral Fellow developing water stable MOFs, in 2016 he joined the research group of Prof. Mercouri G. Kanatzidis at Northwestern University for a second Post-Doctoral appointment. His work at NU focused on the design and synthesis of environmentally friendly and stable perovskite and metal halide materials for optoelectronic applications. He developed the new family of 3D "hollow" perovskites (US Patent 16/623,873), as well as various water stable metal halide materials. He received the 2020 IIN Outstanding Researcher award from the International Institute for Nanotechnology and he holds a teaching certificate (2020-2021) from the SEARLE center at Northwestern University.
