His research background includes chemical and electrochemical reaction engineering, materials science and engineering, heterogeneous catalysis, as well as solid state electrochemistry fields, publishing 36 peer-reviewed articles in acknowledged scientific journals. Vasilis is also a member of the Editorial Board of Frontiers in Environmental Chemistry and a regular reviewer in > 20 journals. His current research focus on experimental and mechanistic methods to explore nanoengineered electrocatalysts and alternative processes for sustainable (electro)chemical energy storage and chemical cogeneration applications. Two of his latest articles on sustainable nitrogen fixation through an electrochemical alternative of the Haber-Bosch process (Joule, 4, 142) and operando observation of exsolution (ACS Nano, 13, 12996) were praised by Science, C&EN and Nature Catalysis.

We congratulate Vasilis with his new position and look forward collaborating with him.
