Dionysia Aravopoulou received her degree in “Applied Mathematical and Physical Sciences’’ by the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) in 2010 and her MSc in “Materials Science and Technology” also in NTUA in 2012. Currently, she is a Ph.D. student in the Physics Department of National Technical University of Athens  under the supervision of Assist. Professor Apostolos Kyritsis and a member of the Dielectrics Group at NTUA.  She is working on the glass transition, water dynamics and stimuli-responsive behaviour, in biopolymers, polymeric biocomposites  and thermoresponsive polymeric systems, employing Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Thermally Stimulated Depolarization Currents (TSDC), Dielectric Relaxation Spectroscopy (DRS) and water Equilibrium and Dynamic Sorption Isotherm (ESI and DSI) techniques. Strong interest is given on the understanding of  the effects on them of different parameters, such as system’s architecture and water content of the materials.
