Panagiotis.Galanis at



My name is Panagiotis Galanis and I am a Research Engineer at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton. With over 4 years of experience in the fields of photonics and microfluidics, I am using my knowledge and skills to design optical systems and develop flexible fluidic platforms for environmental sensing applications. I have a PhD from the Optoelectronics Research Centre at the University of Southampton and my work was focused on the use of laser-based systems for biomedical applications. I have working experience gained through a postdoctoral fellow position at the University of Southampton where I was responsible for the design, fabrication and optimisation of paper-based microfluidic devices for the detection of analytes in biological samples. Additionally, I have worked as a research assistant in the research institute of NCSR DEMOKRITOS for the fabrication of optoelectronic devices such as organic photovoltaics and organic LEDs. During my academic career, I have participated in six international conferences with posters and oral presentations, and I also have three first author and six co-author publications in highly esteemed journals and conference proceedings.
