University of Crete,
George Froudakis is Professor and head of the Chemistry Department of the University of Crete. He is the author of more than 150 publications and his work has received more than 9.000 citations. He has an h-index of 49 (Goggle scholar) and he has given more than 60 invited talks in conferences and institutions. He is in the board of directors of the Greek Hydrogen Platform and a Founding member of the Greek National Science & Innovation Foundation. He has coordinated 10 European and Greek research project and participate in 16 more with a total budget of over 3Μ€. He had supervised 6 Postdocs, 10 PhD and 12 MSc thesis.
His research activities are focused on designing, modelling and investigating properties of nanostructures and porous materials for Energy, Environment and Health applications. Multi-scale computational techniques are developed in–house and used for simulating large systems. Recently, a new computational methodology for large-scale screening of materials with the use of Machine Learning algorithms (ML) was developed.
