A Bit About Me

Dr. Vasileia Melissinaki is a Post Doctoral fellow at FORTH/IESL.  She received her PhD (2017) and Master degree from the department of Physics of University of Crete, Greece. In her PhD thesis she worked on the fabrication and studying of 3D micro-optical elements on the end face of optical fibers and their use as gas and liquid sensors. Her research interests include multiphoton lithography, the fabrication and study of 3D micro-optical elements, the development of optical fiber devices using advanced laser techniques, materials processing using ultrafast lasers and the development of 2D and 3D scaffolds for tissue engineering and micro implants for medical applications. She is the author of 14 peer-reviewed publications in international journals, 6 conference proceedings and 2 book chapters reflecting in more than 820 citations (Google scholar h-index=11).
