Dr. Dimitra Vernardou is an Adjunct Lecturer of Science Department at the Technological Educational Institute (TEI) of Crete, Greece. She is also a visiting Professor in the University of Crete, Department of Materials Science and Technology. She obtained her B.Sc in Chemistry from University of Salford in 2000, her M.Sc in Polymer Science and Technology from UMIST in 2001 and her Ph.D in Physical Chemistry from University of Salford in 2005. Her Ph.D dissertation (under the supervision of Prof. Martyn E. Pemble and Prof. David W. Sheel) was entitled “The Growth of Vanadium Dioxide Thin Films by Chemical Vapor Deposition”.
Her research interests involve the growth of nanostructures and thin films of metal oxides by one-pot direct hydrothermal growth, Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition and electrodeposition for applications in electrochromics, thermochromics and self-cleaning layers. Her recent research work is concentrated on the construction of low cost devices using chemical routes to suit both the glass and plastic industry. She is currently the supervisor of 5 students during their final year projects from the Department of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science and Technology (University of Crete).
