Dr Angeliki Tserepi received the B.Sc. Degree in Physics from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Greece, in 1985, and the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees from the Ohio State University, USA, in 1989 and 1994, respectively. She held a Post-Doctoral (“Marie Curie”) European Fellowship at the University Joseph Fourier of Grenoble, France (1994-1996), and at the Institute of Microelectronics (IMEL)–NCSR "Demokritos", Greece (Return Grant, TMR, 1996-1997). Since 1997, she is with IMEL working on plasma processing of materials for applications in micro- nano(bio)technology and microsystem fabrication. Since Jan. 2013, she is Director of Research at IMEL. Her current interests include design and fabrication of microfluidic devices, biomolecule microarrays, and LOC devices, control of wettability and biomolecule immobilization capacity of surfaces, as well as mechanisms for liquid transport in the microscale. She was/is coordinator of several national research projects (GSRT) and key researcher in European projects. She was chair for SPIE Microtechnologies “BioMEMS and Medical Microdevices” Conference (2013), co-chair for MNE (2008), in the organizing committees of Eurosensors (2011), and Micro & Nano (MMN2007), and technical program committee member of MNE and μTAS conferences. She is reviewer in more than 20 journals, the author/co-author of 7 patents, of more than 90 publications (h-index=27) in international peer-reviewed journals, and one of the guest editors of MNE2008 and SPIE Microtechnologies 2013 Proceedings.
