Prof. Ioannis Zuburitkudis joined the Department of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering (CPE) in the United Arab Emirates (UAEU) in September 2012. Before joining CPE, he was a Professor in the Industrial Design Engineering (IDE) Faculty of T.E.I. of Western Macedonia in Greece. His prior appointments were at Hellenic Petroleum Company, in Thessaloniki, Greece, and the Vacuum and Electrostatics Research Lab of Eastman Kodak Co., in Rochester, NY, USA.
His research tries to identify and understand the impact that nano-scaled dimensions have on material properties, and to use such insights to adapt and affect the design and engineering of advanced materials, surfaces and processes that may lead to valuable products. At TEI–WM, he has organised and still directs the NanoMaterials & Manufacturing Processes Laboratory (NanoMaMa Lab), while he has served as the Head of the IDE faculty. His research has been funded by Greek and EU (European Union) research agencies. Since 2008, he is an active member of EU research networks in the framework of Collaboration in Science and Technology (COST) Action and acts as a Greek Management Committee (MC) member for two of these networks.
