Welcome to my homepage! My name is Emmanouil Glynos and I am an Associate Researcher at the Institute of Electronic Structure and Laser (IESL) of the Foundaration of the Research and Technology-Hellas (FORTH)

- I contacted my PhD in the core subject of polymer physics at the Institute for Materials and Processes at the School of Engineering and Electronics of the University of Edinburgh located in Ediburgh, Scotland, UK, under the supervision of Prof. Vasileios Koutsos . The title of my PhD thesis was ''Atomic Force Microscopy on Self-Assembled Polymer Structures''.

- From 2008 until 2013 , I did my postdoctoral research at the department of Materials Science and Engineering of the University of Michigan , working in the group of Prof. Peter Green. During my postdoc my research forced primaraly on the effect of polymer architecture on the physical properties of macromolecular thin films. In 2010, I started working also in the field of organic solar cells at the new Centre for Solar Energy Convertion at the Univerity of Michigan.

- In 2013 and until the end of 2015 , I worked as a Research Investigator at the department of Materials Science and Engineering of the University of Michigan .
