George Romanos was born in Athens-Greece and studied Chemical Engineering at the National Technical University of Athens (1988-1994). In 1995 he joined the Institute of Physical Chemistry of the National Center for Scientific Research ‘Demokritos’ (NCSRD) as a fellow postgraduate student. He received his Ph.D. in Physical Chemistry (1995-2000) from the National Technical University of Athens (School of Chemical Engineering). In 2006, he was elected as Associate Researcher and from 2015 he is Research Director in NCSRD. His main activities are in the area of porous materials functionalization/characterization and evaluation of their performance in gas adsorption, gas separation and catalytic/photocatalytic applications.
