GIS GUEST EXPERT Stelios A. Choulis is Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Material Science and Engineering at the Cyprus University of Technology and is currently the acting Departmental Chair.
Before he joined the Cyprus University of Technology, he was the photovoltaic device research and development (R&D) group leader of Konarka Technologies from 2006 to 2008 and a member (device scientist/engineer) of the Osram Opto-Semiconductors Inc light emitting diode R & D team at Silicon valley in California, United States. This produced the first commercially available product (micro-display) based on semiconductor polymer (2004-2006).
He completed his PhD at the University of Surrey in the UK and his first post-doctorate research fellowship at the Advanced Technology Institute (1999-2002) at the University of Surrey. Both were funded by the British Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC).
He investigated the optical properties of quantum electronic materials and optoelectronic devices.
He joined the centre of electronic materials and devices at Imperial College London, UK, in 2002 as research associate fellow funded by British Petroleum (BP), and worked on the opto-electronic properties of molecular semiconductor materials and devices from 2002-2004.
Stelios Choulis has authored and co-authored more than 60 refereed journal publications and more than 25 patents (15 families) in the area of functional material, processing and devices. From the citation report (ISI web of science), his work has been cited over 2,800 times.
