Postdoctoral Researcher, 2017 – Present
Despoina has obtained her Diploma in Chemical Engineering from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh). In 2013, she joined the JTSI group as a PhD student. During her postgraduate studies, her research focused on the synthesis and characterisation of perovskites, as catalysts for methane reforming applications on Oxygen Transport Membranes. Since June 2017, she started working as a Postdoctoral Research Assistant, on a project with collaboration with Green Fuels Research for biodiesel production via transesterification of vegetable oil. Her research interests lie in the field of solid state chemistry, synthesis and characterisation of mixed oxides and heterogeneous catalysis.
