Prof. Dr. George Floudas

George Floudas is Professor of Physics at the University of Ioannina, Greece and Senior Visiting Scientist appointed to AK Butt since 2007. He has been Principal Researcher at the Foundation for Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH), staff researcher at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) and post-doc at Imperial College, London (Chem. Eng. Dept.). He obtained his BSc degree in Physics from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, his MSc from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), New York, and his PhD (Physics) from the University of Crete, Greece.

Research Interests

George Floudas is a guest scientist at MPIP. He is interested in the interplay of structure and dynamics of soft materials. He applies scattering techniques and dielectric spectroscopy, respectively. Systems of interest include nanostructured polymers, biopolymers, liquid crystals and ionic systems in the bulk and under confinement.
