Dr. Nikolaos Galanakis
My research is focused on the development of new collective variables and algorithms for crystal structure prediction.
My areas of expertise include Statistical Physics, Quantum Mechanics, Electrodynamics, Mathematical Physics and Molecular Dynamics Simulations.
I obtained my PhD from the University of Sheffield, working on the development and application of novel topological methods to characterize radiation damage effects in borosilicate and iron phosphate glasses. I also hold an undergraduate degree in Physics and a MSc on Theoretical Mathematical Physics and Astrophysics, both obtained at the University of Patras in Greece.
