Brief academic CV

Antonios Kanaras received his diploma in Chemistry from the University of Crete, Greece in 1996. After a Masterís degree in Bioinorganic Chemistry from the University of Ioannina, Greece, he received a Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Liverpool in 2004 under the supervision of Prof. Mathias Brust. The title of his PhD thesis was "Enzymatic Manipulation of DNA-Gold Nanoparticles". He was a postdoctoral scientist with Prof. Paul Alivisatos at the University of California, Berkeley until 2006 working on the synthesis and energy applications of semiconductor nanoparticles. He then re-joined Mathias Brust group at the University of Liverpool as a Research Associate working on the bioconjugation and biological applications of gold nanoparticles. In October 2007 he became a lecturer in Physics and Astronomy, University of Southampton and in March 2012 he was promoted to Senior Lecturer. Since October 2014, Antonios is an Associate Professor.

Antonios has publications in several high impact factor international multidisciplinary Journals. He has given several talks and posters in prestigious conferences including the ACS and the Gordon Research Conference and participated in several European and International meetings as a speaker. He is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
