Biography

Dr. Charalampos (aka Babis) Pitsalidis is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Physics at Khalifa University and a visiting scholar at Cambridge University. He is also director of the Laboratory of Biosystems and Bioelectronics on Chip (Lab BBC).

Dr. Pitsalidis received his BSc in Physics from the University of Crete (Greece) and his MSc in Nanosciences and Nanotechnologies from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTh), Greece. He was then awarded a PhD Scholarship (Heraclitus II) at AUTh, where he completed his PhD in Physics (2014). He then carried out three postdoctoral appointments: Institut Fresnel (2015), Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Mines de Saint-Étienne (2016-2017) and University of Cambridge (2017-2021). 

His research at Khalifa University aims to use organic and hybrid electronic materials for the development of biomimetic structures and devices for monitoring and controlling biological systems at different length scales and complexity levels.
