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 the atomic and electronic structure of surfaces and interfaces, with implications for the development of novel materials with applications from clean energy to quantum technology. The main idea is to systematically increase our knowledge of matter at the atomic scale by using supercomputers and intelligent algorithms to conduct virtual experiments and circumvent the trial and error nature of the lab.
