Dr Sotiria Kripotou received her Diploma in Physics in 1999 at the University of Crete, her MSc in Physics in 2001 and her PhD in Physics in 2005, both at the National Technical University of Athens-NTUA. She has published more than 35 journal papers, 6 papers in conference proceedings and 3 book chapters. Her research activities include structure-property relationships studies in polymers with complex architecture (e.g. hybrid polymer networks, hyperbranched polymers, liquid crystalline polymers, diblock copolymers) and in polymer nanocomposites.
