Georgios Tritsaris



As a physicist, I am developing and implementing concepts that allow us to extract the essence of complex phenomena and help us understand how everything around us is connected.

My research is mainly in the field of theoretical, computational and experimental studies of materials, aiming to understand existing and predict novel nanostructures with applications from clean energy to quantum technologies. The main idea is to circumvent the trial and error nature of the lab and accelerate materials innovation by using supercomputers to conduct virtual experiments and by using intelligent algorithms to automate the scientific process.
