Dr. Stephanos Nitodas, Research Programs Manager at Glonatech S.A. and Lecturer at Stonybrook Campus of SUNY (The State University of New York), graduated with the Diploma of Chemical Engineering from the National Technical University of Athens and with a Ph.D. degree in Chemical Engineering & Materials Science from the University of Rochester, New York. He has been awarded the Morris Cohen Distinguished Award of the Corrosion Division of the Electrochemical Society for the innovation work of his Ph.D. thesis (2001). Dr. Nitodas possesses extensive experience in chemical vapor deposition systems and technologies for the production of nanostructured carbon of various forms (carbon nanotubes and graphene). He has developed several nanotechnology-based polymer materials for high-tech industrial fields (3D printing, electronics, coatings, transportation) and established important research collaborations with major industrial partners, such as British Airways and Thales.
Dr. Nitodas has served as Scientific Consultant to the Deputy Minister of Education, Greece (2010-2012) in terms of preparation of research calls descriptions and implementation of guides for new research programs. He has given lectures and presentations with relation to nanotechnology applications and their engineering design, chemical engineering (thermodynamics, reaction engineering, process control) and nanomaterials synthesis and characterization.
Dr. Nitodas has participated as leading scientist/coordinator in 6 national and European research projects, and as principal scientist in 10 other research projects. He is the author of 24 publications and the co-inventor of 1 international (PCT) patent, whereas he has presented technical papers in over 40 international conferences. He is also editor in the Journal of Nanoscience with Advanced Technology. Since 2013 he is in the Management Committee of 2 EU COST actions. https://www.suny.edu/www.suny.edu/
