Georgia C. Papaefthymiou is a professor of Physics at Villanova University. She has over 150 publications and has held research grants from the US National Science Foundation and the Office of Naval Research. She is the recipient of a Marie Curie Chair of Excellence award from the European Union and a CAPES award from Brazil. She is the co-Editor of the book Nanobiomaterials: Development and Applications by CRC Press. She has taught and conducted research at Columbia University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Wellesley College, Clark University and the Brazilian Center for Research in Physics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She specializes in Condensed Matter Physics, which encompass solid state and soft matter Physics. Her research interests are highly interdisciplinary at the interface of Physics/Chemistry/Materials Science and Biology. During her Fulbright, Dr. Papaefthymiou will be working with scientists at the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology of NCSR Demokritos on the properties of biogenic and biomimetic iron-based magnetic nanoparticles and their assemblies. These nanosystems have important applications in nanoelectronics, nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine and in iron-related medical disorders, including iron overloading and neurodegenerative diseases. She will also teach and deliver seminars at the Department of Physics & Materials Science of the University of Ioannina, the department of Molecular Biology & Genetics of Democritus University of Thrace and the School of Pedagogical & Technological Education, ASPAITE in Athens.
