Georgia Manika

Post-doc at the division of Engineering Materials, Department of Industrial and Materials Science

Georgia is a post-doctoral researcher in the Rheology and Processing Soft Matter research group in the division of Engineering Materials. Her main research activities focus on multifunctional materials exhibiting enhanced properties. Georgia’s main scientific background consists of the study of dielectric/electric response in composite materials. Currently Georgia works on the project “High performance and scalable tailored graphene-polyolefin nanocomposites.”

The main goal of this project is to introduce a new class of novel and multifunctional graphene-polyolefin composites. For this purpose, special designed graphene is employed for the preparation of the nanocomposites’ system, aiming to achieve enhanced electrical mechanical and thermal properties. In this project industrially scalable techniques are used to develop high performance special designed graphene-polymer nanocomposites, targeting to develop a new class of materials in a wide range of applications.
