Zoi N. Terzopoulou is a Chemist, currently a postdoctoral researcher at the at the Chemistry Department of AUTH under the supervision of professor D. Bikiaris and the Chemistry Department of University of Ioannina under the supervision of Associate professor G. Papageorgiou. She is also the project manager of the H2020 Innovation action “BIOMAC” (European Sustainable BIO-based nanoMAterials Community). She has a Master of Science and  a PhD in Polymer Chemistry and Technology, and her research interests include synthesis and characterization of biobased polyesters, copolymers and blends, polymer composites and nanocomposites, synthesis and characterization of polymeric-inorganic nanocomposite biomaterials, polymeric scaffolds for tissue engineering. Her work has been published in more than 65 papers in international scientific journals with impact factor, with over 1500 references, and h-index 25 (google scholar), and participated in 26 national and international scientific conferences, with 2 best poster presentation awards and one best oral presentation award. She participated in numerous nationally and EU funded research programs since 2014 as a researcher and project manager. She has work experience as a Chemist in the R&D laboratory of the flexible packaging industry Hatzopoulos S.A. in Thessaloniki, Greece (2011). In 2016 she received the Scholarship of excellence for PhD students from the Research Committee of AUTH, and in 2020 she was granted a postdoc scholarship from the Greek Foundation of Scholarships to conduct research on biobased polyesters.
