Elias Stathatos


Professor Elias Stathatos was born in 1968 in Patras, Greece. He obtained his first degree in Physics from the University of Patras and then, his Ph.D. from Engineering Science Dept. also at the University of Patras. Prof. Stathatos was a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Cincinnati, USA, at the Civil & Environmental Engineering Dept. In the period 2008-2010, he was Department Head of the Electrical Engineering Dept. in the Technological-Educational Institute of Patras. Today, he is a professor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept. at the University of Peloponnese and Head of the Nanotechnology and Advanced Materials Laboratory (N&AML). He has more than 150 publications in peer review journals and six chapters in books that are recognized with more than 7100 citations (h-index=41). He is Principal/Co-Principal Investigator in 30 funded proposals, while he is a Co-Investigator in five patents related to solar energy conversion and solar cells. He has participated in more than 60 conferences, giving several plenary and invited lectures. He is a reviewer in numerous International Journals (>40) and an editorial board member of the Journal of Advanced Oxidation Technologies, Materials Science for Semiconductor Processing, International Journal of Photoenergy and Section Editor in Chief of “Optoelectronics” of the Journal “Electronics”. His research interests are focused on third-generation solar cells and their characterization. In particular, Prof. Stathatos is interested in the conversion of solar energy to electricity using dye-sensitized, quantum dot and perovskite solar cells employing nanostructured materials. Furthermore, Prof. Stathatos is also interested in electrochromic
nanocomposite materials for smart windows and solar concentrators for enhanced photovoltaic performance after spectral shift.
