Georgios Spyropoulos (a.k.a George D. Spyropoulos) joined Ghent University as an assistant professor in the Department of Information Technology, Faculty of Engineering and Architecture. He received his B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Materials Science and Technology from the University of Crete (Greece). He joined the nanomaterials & organic electronics group (Greece) of Prof. Kymakis to work on organic electronics for his bachelor and master thesis. He then moved to Prof. Christoph J. Brabec’s group at Materials for Electronics and Energy Technology (i-MEET), focusing on smart device fabrication strategies for solution-processed solar cells to pursue his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Engineering at the Friedrich Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (Germany). He is the recipient of the Cross-disciplinary postdoctoral fellowship awarded by the Human Frontier Science Program Organisation. His postdoctoral research at Prof. Khodagholy's Translational Neuro-Electronics lab of Columbia University (USA) aimed at the development of neural interface devices based on organic electronics.
His multidisciplinary research is focused on innovating neural interfaces that can address fundamental questions regarding the auditory-neurological pathways and the neurobiology of the brain, as well as conduct diagnostics and interventions to mitigate relevant disorders. Prof. Spyropoulos is the principal investigator of the Neural Waves (NeW) lab.
